Pros
They have a feature where they can record traffic and create tests on the report traffic.Parasoft SOAtest has improved the quality of our automated web services, which can be easily implemented through service chaining and service virtualization.We can automate our scenarios in a data driven format, which shows there is no rework on scripts. We only need to update the test data and run for a number of scenarios.

The most valuable features are the dashboard reports and the ease of integrating it with Jenkins.Strong code evaluation for budget-minded clients.If code coverage is a low number then that's of great value to me.SonarQube is good for checking and maintaining code quality.Using SonarQube has helped us to identify areas of technical debt to work on, resulting in better code, fewer vulnerabilities, and fewer bugs.We advise all of our developers to have this solution in place.If you want to have your code scanned and timed then this is a good tool.We have the software metrics that SonarQube gives us, which is something we did not have before. This helps us work towards aiming coding standards to empower us to move in the direction of better code quality. SonarQube provides targets and metrics for that.

Cons
The product is very slow to start up, and that is a bit of a problem, actually.Reports could be customized and more descriptive according to the user's or company's requirements.

Although it has Sonar built into it, it is still lacking. Customization features of identifying a particular attack still need to be worked on. To give you an example: if we want to scan and do a false positive analysis, those types of features are missing. If we want to rescan something from a particular point that is a feature that is also missing. It’s in our queue. That will hopefully save a lot of time.Expression of common vulnerabilities and exposures is not always current.I don't believe you can have metrics of code quality based upon code analysis. I don't think it's possible for a computer to do it.I would like to see more options for security, beyond the basics like SQL injection.The solution is a bit lacking on the security side, in terms of finding and identifying vulnerabilities.I would like to see dynamic code analysis in the next version of the software.The reporting is good, but I am not able to download a specific report as a PDF, so downloading reports is something that should be looked at.We've been using the Community Edition, which means that we get to use it at our leisure, and they're kind enough to literally give it to us. However, it takes a fair amount of effort to figure out how to get everything up and running. Since we didn't go with the professional paid version, we're not entitled to support. Of course that could be self-correcting if we were to make the step to buy into this and really use it. Then their technical support would be available to us to make strides for using it better.

A low cost long-term solution for non-critical situations.We are using the free, unlicensed version.The costs for this application, for the kind of job it does, are pretty decent.We're using their free Community Edition version.Some of the plugins that were previously free are not free now.The price point on SonarQube is good.
