Overall Satisfaction with Autostub

As a software house, we work with webservices a lot: services that we develop, services from 3rd party service providers or other systems that we integrate with, etc. Usually in integration activities, you need to mock some of the services you consume for development purposes, testing, CI/CD pipelines, etc. The old approach was to code a simple stub and deploy it to a dev environment, to use as a replacement for the real service, until we found Autostub which does this job VERY well, and with very little effort.
  • Automatically generating stubs for REST and SOAP
  • Managing multiple mock responses for each service if needed
  • None, the experience was excellent
  • Auto-generation of stubs from WSDL files for SOAP APIs
  • Auto-generation of stubs from SwaggerFiles for REST APIs
  • Generating multiple request/response combinations at once
  • Saved a lot of time for developers and testers that would be spent creating mock services
  • Enabled improving CI/CD pipelines with centralized mocks for all needed services
The automatic generation of stub services feature exists in SoapUI but only for SOAP APIs. Also, Autostub is much more usable and friendly, supports REST APIs as well as SOAP, and is offered as a SAAS, On-Prem or hybrid deployment whereas SoapUI needs to be run on a server with no cloud option

Do you think Autostub delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Autostub's feature set?

Yes

Did Autostub live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Autostub go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Autostub again?

Yes

I can't think of any situation where API development/integration is involved and Autostub is not suitable for the job. Any developer at some point may need to mock the APIs somewhere in the product lifecycle, and having a specialized tool like Autostub make this process so much easier and more maintainable.
