Overall Satisfaction with SoapUI

SoapUI is used mainly in the QA departement to test web services i.e. REST and SOAP.

I know it is being used in my departement and in other departement

Solve test automation problem and performance testing. not very happy with the load test module
  • Records Rest requests, easy way to record them and make functional testing easy
  • Records Soap requests, , easy way to record them and make functional testing easy
  • Changing parameters on the requests
  • Assertion on responses easy too and user can save responses
  • Rest Mocking is very nice feature to start testing early and give early feedback
  • Sometimes it is not easy to maintain, work flow testing is not intuitive
  • Json assertion not very easy to do
  • Caching responses does not help getting accrate performance numbers
  • Security testing still something new
  • Positive repeatable steps, easy to learn
  • Positive employees more efficent and effective
  • Negative not very good customer service from their side
  • Positive help us have more coverage -> more automation -> better quality
Compared with HP Service Test: selected SoapUI as it was way cheaper and easier to learn . Also, I always had bad customer service experience with HP so decided to a different route.
I need to evaluate again what I am getting for paid license versus the free version
Easy to learn and to use. but sometimes buggy and they are not very responsive to fixing bugs. Also user community is not very big yet

Using SoapUI

3 - 3 people use it in one of the R&D depatements
1 - Does not need much support
  • functional testing
  • performance testing
  • test automation
  • we just use its out of the box functionality
  • thinking about trying loadui again

Evaluating SoapUI and Competitors

  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Third-party Reviews
Product feature, we need most of the feature we use to be out of the box so we do not have to customize work flows and features
would love to find more websites like trustradius to collect user feedback
