Overall Satisfaction with SoapUI

At Yahoo, we used soapUI as our primary web service testing and troubleshooting tool. Our Technical Account Management team used SoapUI on a near daily basis to analyze SOAP messages from external customers and to help test and troubleshoot issues with Yahoo's various ad platforms.
  • Immediate access to and ability to execute web service requests
  • Very elegant and simple to use UI
  • Includes very useful features for developing test projects and supporting multiple WSDL versions
  • I recall having some issues with SoapUI on Mac. I haven't used it on a Mac so I'm admittedly not sure if these issues have since been resolved. I never had any issues with it on a Windows machine.
  • At Yahoo, we were able to test and troubleshoot SOAP based API issues within a matter of minutes.
  • SoapUI allowed us to replicate the exact issue our customers were experiencing. All we needed from the client was a SOAP request/response and we could use that, in conjunction with SoapUI, to replicate the exact issue our customers were experiencing.
I admittedly never used an alternative SOAP web service testing utility. I used some of the built-in features in Eclipse, but soapUI was used almost exclusively.
At the present time, I do not have much need for SoapUI as I am not working with SOAP based web services. However, this may change in the future at which point I would immediately turn to SoapUI.
SoapUI, as the name suggests, is one of the best SOAP based web service testing tools.
