Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Reporting is pretty good. Its interface is also good. I'm overall pretty happy with the functionality and use of IBM Rational Test Workbench.""This solution provides for API testing, functional UI testing, performance testing, and service virtualization."

"Using SoapUI's automation suites to run all our test cases saved us a lot of time. Running 300 test cases takes about three to four days. When you automate all that, it takes only two to three hours.""It clearly makes it easy to test APIs based on the SOAP protocol. We are a logistics company, and we have lots of tracking calls coming in. We provide APIs for tracking services, and it makes sense for us to use SoapUI to test them thoroughly.""The most valuable features are that it is user-friendly, it's easy to use and easy to teach to others.""The interface is user-friendly.""The solution scales well.""The solution offers excellent integration capabilities.""One good feature is SoapUI's URL check, which allows you to check among the applications. I'm not just talking about the ones for Android. It has all kinds of multi-world tests that are really helpful.""The out-of-the-box support for the database is a valuable feature."

Cons
"There are a number of things that they can do to simplify the tools, but the most important thing that they need to do is simplify the installation.""It should have more interfaces. In terms of interfaces or protocols, what you can do with Rational is far limited as compared to other products out there. What it does, it does great, but it only gives you limited types of protocols. It supports between 8 to 15 types of protocols, whereas other test tools give you 20 to 30 types of protocols with which you can do testing and convert to script. It records Javascript-based scripts, and you got to know a little bit of Java to basically be able to edit them, but the level of editing you got to do is very low. I like that, but the ability to edit the script is not as good as Parasoft or LoadRunner, which have C-Script."

"Grouping of the cases is not possible in SoapUI, to my knowledge. When working with critical cases or the, we were not able to group them properly. We can definitely create a suite and add them there, but within a whole suite, we have to identify them, which was not easy.""If the load and bare minimum could be defined, I would give this solution a higher rating.""The documentation needs to be improved because the interface is not easy for a first-time user.""It is limited to scope and risk services only. It does have some support for JMS, but it is not out-of-the-box; you have to do some tweaks here and there.""There are no bugs or glitches, but a few features available only in the Pro version could be made available in the open-source version. Some of the features do not necessarily need to be only available to Pro users. The data generator would be really useful for the open-source version users.""We tried automation but it's not easy to integrate with the synching and some of the mission tools that we use for automated testing of APIs.""Occasionally, when you are saving, the solution can hang.""Stability has been an issue for us. It needs to be looked at and made a bit better."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It doesn't really concern me. Licensing is on a yearly basis.""The pricing is a little bit on the higher side, although it is really good."

More IBM Rational Test Workbench Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We have team members who are working in shifts, and it is not possible for us to utilize a single license on a single piece of hardware so that multiple team members can use it. We have to take out multiple licenses for each team member.""I think the number of users is also limited, considering how much we pay.""The cost is not that bad.""My understanding is that the pricing is okay, however, that's taken care of by our procurement team. It's around $5,000 for three years.""The Pro version can be expensive for some companies. There are no costs in addition to the licensing fees."
