Overall Satisfaction with Parasoft SOAtest

I used Parasoft SOAtest at my previous company. Parasoft SOAtest was used in the information technology team. This tool assisted quality assurance engineers by minimizing the time and quantity of test cases used for manual testing. Parasoft SOAtest was for web services and browser recorded test cases. Quality engineers were able to organize their test cases in a test suite and execute them automatically.
  • Organized test suites.
  • Fast and efficient execution of automated testing.
  • Built in Javascript that can be used to run test cases with a repository tool such as HP Quality Center. This will show the test results and allow the QA engineer to pass, fail, or set a test case to N/A.
  • Enhance the performance of the browser recording.
  • Make compatible with all repository tools. For example: Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS).
  • Provide an option for a agile environment.
  • Parasoft SOAtest has helped QA reduce their time of testing.
  • Soap UI, Sahi Test Pro, Quick Test Pro and Selenium
Parasoft SOAtest does not freeze up like other tools. I have never had any issues with Parasoft SOAtest shutting down or any slow performance.
Parasoft SOAtest is well suited for QA testing. The Web Services feature is the best.
