Cons

  • This tool comes with a license cost and not free. Many open source tools offer free api testing solution and so making some functionality of this tool as open source would be good
  • Load testing piece is not integrated with in the tool and rather uses Blaze meter which is free.
  • Some integration with UI and api testing will make this tool even more attractive

Alternatives Considered

It definitely is among the top leaders in API testing and virtualization along with the Parasoft SOA tool. Many open source API testing libraries such as Rest Assured, Karate and even Postman and SOAP UI are free which is a little bit against CA.
