Likelihood to Recommend

Katalon Studio

It is well suited for quick automation and avoiding dependency on coding skilled resources. It has no licensing fee. It is not well suited for complex projects where high customization is required.

SoapUI Pro

SopaUI is the best choice when it comes to testing complicated combination of web services such as RESTful, SOAP, JSON and AMF. Although It can also cover simple HTML GUI test cases by calling web page elements as a recorded order, but it is not a good choice for testing user interfaces or as a replacement to Selenium.

Pros

Katalon Studio

  • Easy to use
  • Amazing features for both web app and mobile application
  • Free
  • Easy to find support
  • It supports both manual and script mode

SoapUI Pro

  • Ease of use and setup, particularly with SOAP services where you have the WSDL. Import and go. If your WSDL changes you can update the definition or refactor it, which is a life saver.
  • Decent GUI - I feel the GUI is well thought out in most areas.
  • Scripting and Plugins - Allows setting of a script repository (Pro). In general, you can script in Groovy or JavaScript throughout a project. We use Groovy and haven't run into anything we haven't been able to find a solution to through scripting. For plugins, we've written some custom ones in Java to add menu items. To use them you just have to drop the jar file in a specific directory.
  • Community - The community via blogs and forums is great. If you run into issues you can normally find someone else who had a similar problem. The response on the forums from SmartBear is also good. They also recently added an 'API Dojo' which is very informational.

Cons

Katalon Studio

  • Tutorials and Documentation need to be updated along with new version releases
  • Hope to see more active users and distinguish topic on Katalon forum
Johan Chopra | TrustRadius Reviewer

SoapUI Pro

  • Recently the tool has become heavy since it has integrated virtualization features. Unless provided enough heap space, the tool sometimes can crash during the execution.
  • History of test execution is forgotten as new payload is executed in the same step. Will be useful to keep the history for reuse purposes.

Invested in 1000 of hours reusable test script and modules, and it still seems to be growing. Not to mention that even without that consideration, it would still be the choice for the type of testing SoapUI provides. It is in investment that was wisely made, and requires us to stay the course.

SoapUI allows us to combine multiple tests and adhere
to the sequence that they need to run in order to complete successfully.
It has an excellent GUI design and the reporting mechanism is also very
good. It does consume a lot of memory though during concurrent testing

Soap UI has managed to continuously build on it's solid foundation and keep improving by each release. It is by far the most dependable and accurate testing tool out there of its kind. Available via connecting to VM's created as SoapUI test machines give access to it anytime, anywhere practically.

I love the support. They have provided answers and solutions for most of our questions or doubts that could come up. They also have provided basic tutorials on how to get familiarized with the program.

For my purposes, the provided help features have been sufficient. I am sure I would be better off if I were to spend more time studying the app. For now, I load a project, connect, and execute. It just works.

Alternatives Considered

Katalon Studio

Our team uses Selenium and now we are working on Katalon to see if it can be of any help to our project.
Ashwin Mor | TrustRadius Reviewer

SoapUI Pro

Our team did an extensive analysis of the products that were available to carry out API Testing. There were 3 products that were finalized, SoapUI Pro, Postman, and Katalon Studio, out of these 3 SoapUI was the clear winner. I can't stress enough about the SoapUI's UI interface, very clean. SoapUI Pro enabled us to reuse our test scripts over multiple environments. Enabled us with data-driven testing.

It has an excellent GUI design and the reporting mechanism is also very
good. It does consume a lot of memory though during concurrent testing. However, I have read that added monitoring tools have been added, which if so the 7 could possibly go to a 8 or 9.

Return on Investment

Katalon Studio

  • No License fee: it saves a license fee which has paid for other tools.
  • Able to create a Jenkins pipeline for DevOps saving sufficient time by running nightly.
  • The manual tester can also automate making testing becomes faster.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SoapUI Pro

  • Positive impact: It has made our webservice automation faster and more reliable than manual webservice testing. ROI has definitely increased in recent months.
  • Negative Impact: You need trained resources in order to implement the complete solution. Sometimes it's difficult to find trained sources.
