Overall Satisfaction with SoapUI Pro

We use SoapUI Pro across our organisation in various departments. Engineering, operations and professional services. We have a product which has rich API support. Types of APIs include SOAP, REST and EJBs. SoapUI Pro helps us managing the quality of these APIs - function, performance and security.

We follow the typical automation pyramid where we try and automate as many tests as possible at component level where we have integrated SoapUI Pro with our development environment and run tests as part of Unit Testing. Functional testers then use the same tool to performance the blackbox exploratory testing of the APIs where they make use of SoapUI Pro's data driven testing feature to multiple combinations of tests.
Finally, our operations team also use the tool to make sure the integrity of the application is always kept intact by regularly running the tests using SoapUI Pro on staging, UAT and production environments.
  • Automated creation of extensive function tests based on WSDLs. This creates a full suit of tests where each optional and mandatory attribute is tried multiple times.
  • Great Security testing features which suppor0t varieties of security scans like SQL Injection, XPath Injection, XML Bombs and Custom Scripting using Groovy or JavaScript.
  • Recently the tool has become heavy since it has integrated virtualization features. Unless provided enough heap space, the tool sometimes can crash during the execution.
  • History of test execution is forgotten as new payload is executed in the same step. Will be useful to keep the history for reuse purposes.
  • Tremendous acceleration in increasing the scope of automation.
  • Savings in maintaining the tests at API Level compared to GUI tests.
We have tried Postman, JMeter and Karate. None of these are as user friendly as SoapUI Pro is. More over SoapUI Pro also has a community version. The user community for SoapUIPro is huge and there is good support for queries and questions. With recent updates, the new version of SoapUIPro - ReadyAPI has also added support for service virtualization and extended the support for Swagger and multiple data sources. It's an all-in-one solution for all API testing queries.
One-stop solution for all API needs. Easy to use, support for multiple types of APIs. Powerful Data driven testing features and ability to create Mocks. Newer versions also provided support for creating tests based on drag and drop. Support for multiple databases for database testing. Not only the tool support testing using prebuilt features but also supports extension through Groovy and Java scripting.
