HipTest is good and helpful to create and run functional regressions but it is more complicated to use this tool to create and run API testing scenarios (it does not mean it can not be done). This tool is definitively not appropriate for running performance testing scenarios.

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.

Cons
SmartBear
  • UX is not too obvious and easy (like generating a data table in a scenario or including a scenario in a test run) but you can get used to it relatively easy by playing around with the options, also the documentation is helpful.
  • To get extra functionalities you have to pay for them separately.

  • I actually like SoapUI as it is, I have not found things to improve, except for the speed of response is very complex services.

The tool includes a basic but complete documentation that can be very helpful to get started using the tool. The UX sometimes does not feel very easy to understand but after some use you can get familiar without reading the documentation. The webinars are not very useful for using the tool, I have seen a couple of them and they are actually focused on promoting their HipTest product to new users instead of being useful and educational for current users.

Every application has its own features and UI design but SoapUI is also very good at testing. All features are awesome.
