Techniques are described for providing enhanced interactions with software services, such as when executing software programs use remote software services. For example, if a software program is executing on a first computing system and using remote services provided by one or more other computing systems, one or more local software proxies may be executed on the first computing system to represent the remote services. The software program may interact in a common manner with the local software proxies, while each local software proxy may interact with its corresponding remote service in a manner specific to that remote service and transparent to the software program. Furthermore, a local software proxy may facilitate software program testing, such as by interacting with a local copy of a remote service rather than the actual remote service during testing and/or by emulating asynchronous message interactions with a remote service during testing.
