One Stop Solution for All Your API Woes

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Automated creation of extensive function tests based on WSDLs. This creates a full suit of tests where each optional and mandatory attribute is tried multiple times.
  • Great Security testing features which suppor0t varieties of security scans like SQL Injection, XPath Injection, XML Bombs and Custom Scripting using Groovy or JavaScript.
  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • By defining variables, you can customize parameter values without hard coding the values in the whole test-case.
  • You can also use external data sheets to retrieve data to your executions.
  • MockResponse module should be more enhanced and simplified.
  • I wish SoapUI would allow you to make a sample request which only consists of the required fields and leaves the optional fields out of the sample.

SoapUI Pro is great for separating functional issues from connection issues.

Pros and Cons

  • I like the way this app keeps my projects organized. We have many different services, and I would hate to have to reload each one each time it is needed.
  • I am a big fan of this app, but I must admit it does not always render thoroughly on all monitors. I have not taken the time to figure this out, but at times the image is just too small to read. I switch it to a different monitor, and it always works out.

Pros and Cons

  • The SoapUI tool is the best out there when you need to test a web service with ease.
  • Great collaboration features, especially the scripts repository available in the paid version.
  • Documentation should be better, despite being a simple tool to use.
  • Sometimes the huge amount of configuration parameters could be overwhelming, luckily there is tons of information on the web and forums to solve any question or problem.

SOAP UI Hasn't Cleaned My Troubleshooting Needs Yet

Score 5 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Managing different testing environments through projects.
  • Makes a clear distinction between REST and SOAP troubleshooting.
  • There are a lot of options available that support various data standards, some that are more obscure but help the person that needs it.
  • When you need to just do a quick REST test, it takes too long to get everything setup from a new project.
  • Adding authentications can be a pain, and if it's basic auth then you have to base64 encode it yourself.
  • The UI used to be pretty ugly. Their update to it recently seemed to just put a flat look on everything to make it seem modern but didn't actually overhaul much. Buttons still jump around and move/shift when other dynamic areas change during a test that goes through a bunch of calls. Also, they still use child windows to control all the views, which isn't very nice to work with considering no other development application I use does that.

Pros and Cons

  • Can be easily used by technical and non-technical staff in multiple environments that are familiar to them.
  • Its data-driven testing capabilities and real-world condition testing save a lot more time that can be put to some other usage.
  • It simplifies regression testing and clearly shows the test approach used and testing areas covered.
  • Test results and functionality can be tracked easily using test history and result comparison.
  • Its report building template is very cool and understandable they provide and highlights each and every required information in a better way.
  • It is quite heavy for old systems - The lite version could be beneficial for such old machines.

Soap UI for Technical Product Managers and Business Analysts

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Easy to see all possible methods of a web service, easy to create many different possible requests.
  • The formatted view makes it easy to see the whole request and response.
  • It's easy to share via colleagues including all possible trials.
  • Some features could be added via add ons like an HTTP monitor, test runner, some artifacts. With them, it becomes a big installation (modularity).
  • Sometimes it takes some time to open the interface; it is important to have a faster interface in today's applications.
  • It could include input and output beautifiers - this would make users happy because they may use this feature heavily while they are making documentation.

  • Acts as a great external source to get data onto the main system.
  • Runs all kinds of XMLs irrespective of their size.
  • Great tool for API testing.
  • Saving projects can be a little confusing for beginners.

Pros and Cons

  • Test validation on API responses
  • Mock services to test parts of the application
  • REST Discovery and Groovy scripting features
  • Working with Git needs to be improved.
  • The licenses could be more flexible with regards to floating licenses. In the case that a user changes a workstation, then the license locked to a certain workstation cannot be easily changed to another workstation. It would be more flexible if a license could be linked with the user personally.

API testing using SOAPUI

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Create test cases and test suites for testing API's
  • Test both SOAP and REST web services.
  • Test runners for running automated jobs.
  • It can be made more user-friendly, beginner users struggle to use the interface. For example, learning how to add request headers for different types.
  • Hermes JMS is slow for testing MQ services and struggled to use SOAPUI over other message queue tools.

SoapUI - playing with web services

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Rapid import of web services. Just by placing the url where the service is located, the application is responsible for directly detecting the .asmx and creates the necessary structure to work on it.
  • The interface is quite simple to work with, which makes it one of the most convenient applications to manage SOAP or REST projects. Besides, it also generates a self-saving of projects or requests that have not been previously saved.
  • Accepts multiple types of media to send in POST requests, including the most used JSON and XML.
  • What should be improved is the way in which the multiple queries that are made are displayed. It should allow you to see it in the form of tabs and not cover all the contents of the window.

Decreasing relevance in a RESTful world, but invaluable to SOAP users

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Quickly and easily discover and connect to service endpoints
  • Create and save test requests for easy re-use
  • Immediate "is the service up and responding" checks.
  • The UI is written in Java, and as such sometimes behaves in unexpected ways - ways that a native Windows UI would not.
  • Startup time can often be painfully slow. Once the program is running, it performs well, but starting up can sometimes take nearly a full minute. I believe this is also due to having been written in Java.
  • I used to consistently get errors about not having enough memory for the program to start up (in spite of having far more memory than it will ever need in my machine). I solved the problem by manually tweaking the startup script to allocate more memory to the Java Runtime Engine. However, this solution seems to have exacerbated the slow startup time I mentioned above.

SOAUI NG Pro- Best in the industry.

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Full Support for SOAP Services Testing. It will help you to create envelopes and headers to satisfy WS-Security, WS-Addressing etc.
  • The 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 SOAP UI and run it from outside on your CI/CD tool (i.e. Jenkins, Gitlab etc) with the help of Maven.
  • The User Interface of SOAPUI is very oldish.
  • Sometimes it acts weird, like if you change/remove any header in the request it will not go away until you restart SOAP UI. So the changes does not reflect immediately. I guess is something with UI only.
  • Can add basic assertion like JSON match, XML Match , Json Schema Validation etc.

Pros and Cons

  • Provide support to fully test newly developed web services.
  • Easy GUI interface which helps to add customers' credentials easily while using web service.
  • An easy way to get a response through with the help of auto-created request XML.
  • It should add more GUI option which can show syntax error while adding new request XML.
  • Adding credentials is a little bit confusing as it does not show any hit.
  • It should allow sending the null value in request XML tags.

SoapUI: The best available test tool for Web Services.

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • SoapUI NG Pro is a prefect tool for setting up complicated test cases with many steps including parameterized Web Service requests, response assertions, data generators, data sources, data sinks (report recorders) and more
  • You can use Groovy or JavaScript for more complicated automation such as validating the results, extracting data, using external Java libraries or running system processes. Groovy IDE is compatible with Java and you can easily write your code in Java with very few modifications.
  • SoapUI enables you to run multiple test suites in parallel or in a loop, and provide user friendly reports including all test case results and test case coverage.
  • SoapUI NG Pro lets you to perform security test against your web services with predefined scenarios such as xml bombing, xml injection, sql injection, buffer overflow tests, monkey testing and so on.
  • SoapUI NG Pro, offers a simple but practical solution for low to medium load testing scenarios. You can obtain many more Load and Performance testing features by extending your license with purchasing LoadUI Pro.
  • For JMS interactions, SoapUI relies on HermesJMS which is a 3rd party program and outdated. You can not easily run parallel tests suites when JMS sessions are involved.
  • SoapUI can easily cover LDAP for both testing and data-driven purposes but this feature is not provided yet.
  • As of 2015, SmartBear Software is enforcing the Pro users to use their All-in-One integrated platform: Ready!API . This tool is very slow in comparison with the SoapUI itself. For example, loading a project takes up to 15 seconds in a decent computer, so does clicking on different tabs for the first time.

SoapUI despite the name is not a slipery tool that one always has problems grasping. In fact, it's the opposite!!

Pros and Cons

  • Ability to combine multiple test and adhere to the sequence that they need to run in order to complete successfully, regardless of pass or fail, the result is accurate.
  • Excellent GUI design to make it as organic for the tester as they are revising or updating their tests. Once you get comfortable with the core functionality of SoapUI, you can explore the many added capabilities it has, like utilizing groovy or JavaScript. You can provide input and output files for the tests to use in sequence or randomly.
  • Excellent reporting mechanism and options to print or to save to file. Also you can include verbose debugging content or create a shorter executive summary version. We even went as far as importing it to SQL database for cataloging and archiving for the sake of better tractability.
  • Memory consumption, in large concurrent testing has been a challenge for SoapUI, mostly due to the amount of information that is getting written to the database, but there are workarounds to custom install SoapUI which for example runs on a Cloud server, where it can provide SoapUI the elasticity that it may need with large concurrent tests that run for while before completing.
  • compatibility with all other databases and Open Cloud environment such as OpenStack out there in Open source, which I think is already in works.
  • Integration of LoadUI is good, but to take serious step to compete with other performance and load testing tools

Score 10 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • 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.
  • REST - They have come a long way, but there could still be improvements here. I find the learning curve much higher and not as straight forward using REST vs SOAP.
  • Composite Projects - I'd really like to see them implement something around saving/refreshing Test Suites when using the Composite project ability in Pro. This is currently an enhancement in feature backlog (see their forum for more details). Functionality around Projects and Test Cases seems pretty sound.
