Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"We can write code in Java and it is easy to link to other JARs that we find on the internet, which is very handy.""The functionality of the data is very good. You can upload and disperse data using the solution.""This solution is very user-friendly to learn and implement, and less technical knowledge is required to handle automation.""The basic framework and project organization is very good.""This is a product that is well ahead of its immediate competition in features and functionality.""The most important feature is the Jenkins integration; it is pretty straight forward and allows us to run nightly builds.""It is easy for a non-technical person to use and adopt.""The best thing about the solution is that there is a record and playback functionality."

"The interface is ok and they have the ability to re-load tests so that you can reuse them.""The dashboards are very good and consolidate all of the tests that you are performing with the client.""The most valuable feature of ReadyAPI is that it is user-friendly.""It has the ability to combine it with different CI/CD tools.""A single platform for functional testing, load testing security, and service actualization.""The most valuable features are the integration with Jira and the test management tools.""When you are working in sprints, you need to have continuous feedback. ReadyAPI definitely helps in automating very fast and rapidly. We have less coding, and we can more easily define our assertions. We don't use it for full-blown performance testing, but normally if you are doing your functional testing, it gives you the request and response time. Anybody who is doing functional testing can see what the request and response times are and raise a flag based upon their business affiliates, that is, whether it is meeting their affiliates. You can identify this during functional testing."

Cons
"The Object Spy is rather frustrating to work with, so I tend not to use it.""Katalon doesn't support testing of hybrid applications. It's a limitation.""My recently-updated Katalon studio version hangs a lot and is not a stable version.""We have had some issues when it comes to stability, which is something that needs to be improved.""They need to work on documentation to make it more centralized and easier to find what you are looking for.""It would be helpful to have an automatic save feature.""It is difficult to identify elements on websites that use Angular or ReactJS because they don't have an option to view source code.""The free version of the solution is not user friendly at all."

"I would like to see a better dashboard for monitoring in the next release of this solution.""If ReadyAPI had more integration with all of the big tools on the market then this would be very useful.""Performance and memory management both need to be improved because other solutions use less memory for the same amount of data.""The performance in some cases needs improvement. Sometimes it requires too many resources.""Lacking flexibility of adding more custom verification for security testing.""The reporting is not very robust and needs to be improved.""It doesn't have connectors to the NoSQL database. This is one of the things where they do not have a very solid strategy today. Other solutions have an in-built mechanism where I can directly and easily connect. An API is more around a user submitting a request on the frontend. It then hits the backend, puts the data, and responds back. If I am hitting MongoDB or NoSQL databases, I do not have ready-made inbuilt solutions in ReadyAPI that can easily help me in automating it faster. In our organization, we deal with NoSQL databases, and therefore, we need Groovy. We just cannot have a connector from ReadyAPI to do that. I have to write Groovy scripts. If you have themes that are predominantly using MongoDB, it leads to more maintenance and support activity because we are introducing more code into our commission. In terms of additional features, it can have cloud support. This is one of the things where we are getting into cloud support. We'll see how it works, but it is one of the doubts that we still have."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This product is freeware, so there is no charge for using it.""The tool is free to use.""It is freeware software, so start using it.""There is a free version of the tool to use and support is available through the community forums, but there is a licensed version as well.""We were using the free version of this tool.""Katalon Studio is a free tool.""We are using the free version of Katalon Studio at this point.""The price is not high it's good."

More Katalon Studio Pricing and Cost Advice »

"This is a cheap solution when you consider the money that will be saved in testing.""The cost of a license is probably around $1,000 to $2,000. Accounting is done by my leadership. I am more into implementations and making sure all things and processes are taken care of and the frameworks are maintained and managed."
