Overall Satisfaction with SoapUI NG Pro

I am a technical product manager. While we are dealing with opening new services via our product, it becomes very vital to test the input and output of services to look for all possible values. It is used by all system/business analysts and product managers across the whole organization. It seems there is no better alternative because it is a compact tool and makes analysts' and product managers' lives easier while dealing with the whole functionality of our products.
  • Easy to see all possible methods of a web service, easy to create many different possible requests.
  • The formatted view makes it easy to see the whole request and response.
  • It's easy to share via colleagues including all possible trials.
  • Some features could be added via add ons like an HTTP monitor, test runner, some artifacts. With them, it becomes a big installation (modularity).
  • Sometimes it takes some time to open the interface; it is important to have a faster interface in today's applications.
  • It could include input and output beautifiers - this would make users happy because they may use this feature heavily while they are making documentation.
I have used the "Advanced Rest Client." It has a faster interface but it is not as complete a solution as SoapUI in terms of structure and usage. If someone thinks professionally about integration projects, SoapUI is an essential tool that should never be missed.
For integration between two different systems, it is well-suited to show what parameters the client system should send and receive. In order to format output, SoapUI is less appropriate, and it is required to use other formatting tools.
