SystemLink

There are definitely scenarios where NI SystemLink will be useful but just didn't work out well for us. I needed to be able to replace an EXE file on a computer with a new EXE to do the upgrades but I was not able to do that through SystemLink. You had to work with packages in order to perform this and I didn't want to revamp my distribution plan. We also didn't need to do any asset management or calibration documentation through SystemLink. I was excited about being able to view data from the test stations through a browser but our engineers need historical data available and everything resets to a live view when you click back to the UI.

SoapUI Open Source

If you are making system upgrade project and you have existing system working and you want to imitate messages that are going in production but without making any data loads or switch it’s very suitable and convenient software. It serves well in manual test scenarios but wouldn’t be as good in case of mass tests.

Compared to SoapUI, we have been using "light" tools like RestClient extension in Firefox, or Postman.Compared to Postman, SoapUI is more simple for WSDL / SOAP webservices, as SoapUI generate all envelop, but Postman does not.For Rest API, I think that Postman is a little above SoapUI, but not too far away.

Return on Investment

SystemLink

  • Availability to monitor multiple test stations remotely
  • Was quick to integrate into existing LabVIEW codebase
  • Ultimately did not justify the licensing cost for the benefit

  • Testing resolves most of the issues in the development phases.
  • User friendliness of the app makes it good.
  • Overall client happiness depends on the clean project, which is possible by testing.
