Generally speaking, it's the most powerful tool if you're working with soap services. It's well suited to be used to automate daily time-consuming tasks that rely mainly on soap services, by using groovy scripts that can help add an unlimited set of functionality like creating test data, verifying test data, and adding documents through soap services to requests. It's not very appropriate to be used with RESTful services since there are more powerful tools that provide a wider range of functionalities.

We use ReadyAPI [(formerly SoapUI Pro, LoadUI Pro, & ServiceV Pro)] to test other web services for evaluation and discovery purposes. WSDL and other SOAP services are especially tedious to manually test in other generic HTTP testing tools, especially with large payloads. ReadyAPI lets us skip the needless scaffolding and send requests quickly, so that we can begin development on consuming the services in our projects.

ReadyAPI also allows configurable test cases for WSDLs, which enable integration testing of a service that might otherwise be difficult or tedious.

ReadyAPI can test REST and other simple HTTP requests, but is tedious for one-off testing of these types of APIs.

ReadyAPI is mostly well suited for testing web services and API's. You can use it to perform all kinds of testing like functional testing, security testing and load testing. Also, you can use it to mock different web services which can be very useful in testing. The tool supports both REST and SOAP services which are the mostly common services used.

It makes creating a project from the scratch to test our web service is easy and straight forward. It helps in API integrations as well. I like it because it is very simple to understand, we can explore resulting XML in a very convenient way. There is nothing i dislike about SoapUI.

It is well suited in the development phase, when developers can import definitions (SOAP, REST) and work with different APIs. It can also be used to define contracts for API through Swagger / OpenAPI. In the testing phase, it can be integrated in CI / CD pipelines to run test suites for different APIs. Also, when multiple teams work on different APIs which are to be consumed by the other, virtualisation feature in ReadyAPI helps in creating virtualised services through the definitions / contracts created earlier.

Being a commercial tool, there is a lot of expectation to have very smooth set up [of] the framework for the API test automation, but in reality we had challenges in doing that so it would be nice to have an easier setup. The main problem is performance of the tool, which is something SmartBear has to work [on] in all [of] their products. It hangs quite often [and then you] need to restart the application.

I am not able to recall using anything which can be compared to ReadyAPI for API testing. ReadyAPI is a must-have tool for mid/large organizations to test their API services across all envs. ReadyAPI is well suited to test all kinds of API types.

The disadvantage of ReadyAPI is that sometimes it's not stable and it crashes and if your changes are not saved, it's all lost. I would love to see a recovery feature added to it. Also, it doesn't have dark mode support which really strains my eyes.

I would recommend ReadyAPI if the organization is ready to fully embrace the ReadyAPI ecosystem. It is the most feature-rich and fully integrated suite of products for API design, testing, and collaboration. But it is opinionated in how it does things, and it really only provides value (for the cost) if you leverage the whole suite.
If you're looking for something lightweight, that can start providing value right away without too much setup, then you may be disappointed with ReadyAPI.

1. GUI automation is not possible.
2. Performance degrades, when steps grows or multiple projects are added in a workspace.
3. Version support, in case someone is using older version, the application stops proper execution. A pop up should be shown with the changes in newer version.
4. Also, updating version sometimes removes our prior many changes.
5. Sometimes even though we save steps etc., the same is not saved and need to redo it.

Anyone can start with free version. Pro version is well suited [for] automating functional testing and data driven testing and doesn't require scripting knowledge for simple cases. LoadUI Pro is good for load testing but is quite expensive when [there are a] lot of free options are available.

It will help you to create envelopes and headers to satisfy WS-Security, WS-Addressing, etc. IT has a wide range of assertion options. If you are still not satisfied, you can write your own assertion with the help of Groovy script and can use any Java library to do so. The Maven Support. You can simply export a TestSuite from SoapUI and run it from outside on your CI/CD tool (i.e. Jenkins, Gitlab, etc.) with the help of Maven.

We use ReadyAPI mainly for the regression test, really easy to check all the endpoints that you need in less time. Also is really easy add new endpoint. Also, we check one a week all the API that we has with just one click, providing the errors with good response and efficiency.

Pros: Create API tests quickly, even for inexperienced users. Import swagger definition which in turn allows all needed APIs to be covered.

Cons: Reviews are complicated due to xml format, lack of advanced scripting

Powerful data-driven testing: Load data from Excel, files, and databases to simulate the way consumers interact with your APIs
Reusability of scripts: Reuse your functional test cases as load tests and security scans in just a few clicks
SoapUI supports customization of Reports in different formats

We compared SoapUI Pro with a lot of other products in the market like Postman and Katalon Studio. SoapUI Pro was the winner. This provides a clean user interface and an excellent way to organize projects. Helped us with test reports and handled multiple testing environments. Our team resued the test scripts efficiently.
