Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is a good source for load, stress and performance testing."
"It helped in achieving the testing of on-premise applications, as well as cloud-based applications, without much difficulty."
"NeoLoad is best tool for testing in production without making many changes to the script or solution."
"I like the scripting and parameterization features."
"The scripting is really user-friendly and the reporting is very good."
"The test cases are quite easy to build and to maintain. This is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us. It's the reason why they changed from JMeter to NeoLoad."
"The most valuable feature is flexibility, as it connects to all of the endpoints that we need it to."
"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."
"It's easy to learn how to use it."
"It needs improvement with post-production."
"NeoLoad does not support Citrix-based applications."
"While importing the scripts from backup it should not create the new variables because it has created some issues for us."
"I would like to see support for auto-correlations."
"Sometimes it's complicated to maintain the test cases. It's much easier than in JMeter, however. I'm not sure if this depends so much on NeoLoad, or is more based on the environment that we are testing."
"Most people focus on HTTPS or TCP, but it would be good to have support for a variety of different protocols."
"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."
"Version control does not work well."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is cheaper than other solutions."
"The licensing cost is less compared to other licensing performance testing tools."
"Licensing for NeoLoad is subscription-based."
"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."
"There are costs in addition to the licensing fee. For example, if you want to add the load testing you would pay more."
