Understanding Send Master

The Send Master utility enables you to test PeopleSoft Integration Broker service operation interactions with PeopleSoft and third-party web servers, application servers, and integration gateways. It can test listening connector functionality, target connector functionality, connector introspection and transactions

Send Master enables you to post any data format, including the PeopleSoft Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) message format, to web and application servers over HTTP and HTTPS. You can also use Send Master to simultaneously test groups of different types of service operations, as well as stress test your system. Send Master also enables you to perform Get functions and to ping application messaging gateways and Third-party servers.

Starting the Stand-Alone Version of Send Master

The standalone version of Send Master is located in the <PS_HOME>\Sendmaster folder, and is named StartSendMaster.bat. If you attempt to launch the batch file and Send Master does not open, you most likely need to set PS_HOME in the environment variables on your machine.

Appreciate your effort, however the information can be found in PeopleBooks. Posting few examples like using Ping function or HTTPTarget with 3rd part etc will be more helpful.
