Testing server faults with Wiremock

SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) as a modern approach to build distributed enterprise applications gives us many benefits, including resiliency and fault-tolerance. On the other hand, there are many new kinds of SOA-specific faults, like publishing, discovery, composition, binding or execution faults (as stated in A Fault Taxonomy for Service-Oriented Architecture). Error handling is one of the most important things to have services right designed and implemented (see article Error Handling Considerations in SOA Analysis & Design). In this article, I want to focus only on a small aspect of this broad subject: unexpected service behaviors which, if not properly handled by the client, can lead to application inaccessibility.
