Overall Satisfaction with ReadyAPI (formerly SoapUI Pro, LoadUI Pro, & ServiceV Pro)

Until now, I have suggested three of our clients to use SOAP UI for their automated testing. I am an Integration developer and love automation (CI/CD). For leveraging the full advantages of DevOps lifecyle, we wanted to automate our assembly test cases for SOAP and REST APIs. After a bit of R&D across the market, I came to know the amazing features of SOAP UI Pro. We can write test cases, can use custom assertions with Groovy and can do a lot of cool stuff with SOAP UI. The best thing which pushes us to buy soap UI is its ability to execute TestSuite from outside of the SOAP UI IDE with Maven support. This is what we wanted to use in a DevOps environment, a testing framework which can be executed from outside with Maven. The another cool thing about SOAP UI is the reporting. It is very detailed and a person with minimal technical background can understand it easily.
  • Full Support for SOAP Services Testing. It will help you to create envelopes and headers to satisfy WS-Security, WS-Addressing etc.
  • The wide range of assertion options. If you are still not satisfied, you can write your own assertion with the help of Groovy script and can use any Java library to do so.
  • The Maven Support. You can simply export a TestSuite from SOAP UI and run it from outside on your CI/CD tool (i.e. Jenkins, Gitlab etc) with the help of Maven.
  • The User Interface of SOAPUI is very oldish.
  • Sometimes it acts weird, like if you change/remove any header in the request it will not go away until you restart SOAP UI. So the changes does not reflect immediately. I guess is something with UI only.
  • Can add basic assertion like JSON match, XML Match , Json Schema Validation etc.
  • It completes and compliments our DevOps Strategy.
  • For Developers, writing test cases is very easy. No need of testers to write test cases.
  • Postman
Testing SOAP services with Postman is a bit heavy task , so we chose SOAP UI over Postman.
It is best suited for CI/CD. The Maven support is superb with minimal dependencies. For Rest APIs , It still needs some improvement but for SOAP It is the best tool in the market. So if your requirement is to test both SOAP and REST, go for it and If its only REST which you want to test, you can look for alternatives.
