Hi Padma,

I have personally found Echo Mirage tool useful for security testing of a thick client application.
Like a proxy tool for testing web application, Echo Mirage can be used to intercept and modify the request from the client to the server and perform most of your validation related attacks.

Thanks & Regards,
