It is used in area of integration test by my department. It helps us to generate xml messages to check if configuration was correctly determined. Software can imitate any other system. It’s easy to maintain routing and after initial setup is done it’s very easy to paste and generate messages.
  • Ease of implementation
  • Ease of use
  • User friendly interface
  • No history of executed tests
  • Too many options - possibility to hide some views would be beneficial
  • Sometimes i wasn’t sure if message was sent.
  • Performance isssues
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.
  • XML generation
  • Functional testing
  • Test scripts maintenance
  • Saved a lot of manual effort in area of system connections
  • SoapUI saved time I would have to invest in manual creation of idocs on ERP level. Here I can just copy and paste test cases.
  • No negative impact at all

In our organization, SoapUI is mainly used by our Dev team department.

It is used in order to test all of our web services (SOAP, REST), from several sources (ASMX from SharePoint, custom ASMX, PHP web services, etc).

It is also used when there is an issue with technical interfaces between our tools, for example between our CRM and our e-Commerce platform. In order to update/remove data, we are using SoapUI to check or update data manually.

We have also several calls to external API, and if we want to test if they work properly, then we are using SoapUI
  • SOAP
  • REST
  • Authentication
  • Tutorials
Even if there are 2 versions of SoapUI, the free version of SoapUI is very complete.

When you need to test a specific API (SOAP or REST), it is very useful and simple to use.
You can save several projects in SoapUI, so you can access multiple API directly from your SoapUI tool. For example, we are using it for our several environments : (stagging, quality, production, development). So with several projects, we can access several projects / API.

SoapUI, in the free version, does not provide any way to work as a team, you need to send manually the project if you want to share them.
  • Projects
  • Testing WSDL
  • Testing REST
  • Multiple authentication
  • Easy of use
  • Free version
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.

In my organization, we are using SoapUI Open Source in the software development department. We focus on the development of web services for companies in the tourism and hotel sector, so SoapUI has helped us in all our tests and simulations of each of our services, all this in a completely reliable and safe environment.
  • It is very fast to do complex simulations and create webservices in just minutes
  • It has a very friendly interface, for me it is beautiful.
  • It is very easy to debug the web service and locate the errors
  • I actually like SoapUI as it is, I have not found things to improve, except for the speed of response is very complex services.
I recommend it to those developers who have extensive experience in web services because at the beginning it is not usually easy to get up to speed due to the degree of difficulty of the interface and its functions. But in general, once you have mastered its basic functions, it is almost impossible not to stop using it.
  • In my organization, we sell many web services for tour operators and we are constantly developing new products dedicated to tourism such as hotel booking, car rentals. SoapUI is our everyday tool for testing our services during development.
  • At first we tried the Trial version and it was great, so much so that we decided to buy it because we have a high workflow and I can properly say that it is worth every penny.
  • Although the price was a bit high, the earnings we obtained compensated for the entire initial investment. This tool is really useful in all aspects.

I'm using it for API testing and it is very useful to me because it supports the Swagger format. My organization is also using it. I have never faced any problem with this app.
  • API testing
  • Functional testing
  • Open source
  • User interface
  • Should simplify UI
  • I'm using it majorly for API testing so its good in that area
It's best for API testing and functional testing of code. It also supports Swagger and I think ramp formats. UI improvement is needed. Some of my colleagues are also saying that UI should be nice or, if possible, should be browser bases.
  • Testing
  • Mostly all features
  • Automatic functional testing
  • 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.
Every application has its own features and UI design but SoapUI is also very good at testing. All features are awesome.

SoapUI is an powerful tool for API testing and solid framework.As it is an open source tool, it is totally free for everyone who use web service testing. We send services ad send data through webservices . We can declare the variables and change the values parameters without having code in our test cases. We just load the WSDL address and it shows us all the methods and then we submit the variables and send it and get the result. its interfere is easy to learn
  • Easy to use
  • Test out web services
  • Better hands on groovy
  • It shows an error if the request has special characters.
  • Writing upload test cases is a bit difficult
  • Virtual services are not supported
Easy to install with a great interface. We just need to put the WSDL URL and it shows us all the methods present in the WSDL location. We only need to submit the variables and send them and it shows the output in split screen with success or error.
  • Saves time in web service testing
  • Make it easy
  • No need to code much
