Parasoft SOAtest

This is the go to tool for all the web service testing needs. You can do functional testing, regression testing, automate the testing and drive the data from external sources like a Excel spread sheet or an xml document and finally performance testing. It can get better in scenarios where the response is to be compared with UI, with more automation. The license cost needs to be considered when there are many open source tools out there in the market.

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

Parasoft SOAtest

  • Organized test suites.
  • Fast and efficient execution of automated testing.
  • Built in Javascript that can be used to run test cases with a repository tool such as HP Quality Center. This will show the test results and allow the QA engineer to pass, fail, or set a test case to N/A.

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

Parasoft SOAtest

  • As always, this is not a free tool and you have to pay for license. There are many open source tools which can perform similar job with no cost albeit with less functionality and more head work.
  • There is still some more room for improving the automation which can include more UI level components to make life lot easier when comparing the response vs UI.

  • 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.

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.

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.

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

Parasoft SOAtest

  • It has been of tremendous help as the ONE STOP TOOL to test the APIs end to end. Ease of use is great and their support staff is excellent. They always conduct brown bag sessions for us to learn about new features. Overall it has given us a great ROI considering how fast we can test and deliver to market.

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.
