If you're looking for a tool for building and running integration tests for API apps or other website/web services, HttpMaster is the way to go. A nice feature it offers is a free version, so you can see if it'll suit your needs before paying for it. An instance where it may not be the best option is if you're needing to build and run security tests, or requirements-based testing.

    Other honorable mentions are Paw, Insomnia Rest Client, and HTTPie. The reason we selected HttpMaster was primarily due to its ease-of-use. It's a very easy tool to set up, it has a nice UI, it offers a free version for trial purposes, and, similar to other tools, it can do all the testing we need for our applications.

    Selenium is similar to IBM Rational Functional Tester but is not as user friendly and does not support thick applications. Visual Studio Coded UI is newer so not as refined; the object inspector/management and execution log results is poor compared to IBM Rational Functional Tester.
