Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"They have a feature where they can record traffic and create tests on the report traffic."

More Parasoft SOAtest Pros »

"This has improved our organization because it has helped to find Security Vulnerabilities.""The most valuable features are the wide array of languages, multiple languages per project, the breakdown of bugs, and the description of vulnerabilities and code smells (best practices).""Integrate it into the developers' workbench so that they can bench check their code against what will be done in the server-based audit version.""The most valuable function is its usability.""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.""If you want to have your code scanned and timed then this is a good tool.""We advise all of our developers to have this solution in place.""Using SonarQube has helped us to identify areas of technical debt to work on, resulting in better code, fewer vulnerabilities, and fewer bugs."

Cons
"The product is very slow to start up, and that is a bit of a problem, actually."

More Parasoft SOAtest Cons »

"I would like to see SonarQube implement a good amount of improvements to the product's security features. Another aspect of SonarQube that could be improved is the search functionality.""The product's user documentation can be vastly improved.""A robust credential scanner would be a huge bonus as it would remove the need for yet another niche product.""We're in the process of figuring out how to automate the workflow for QA audit controls on it. I think that's perhaps an area that we could use some buffing. We're a Kubernetes shop, so there are some things that aren't direct fits, which we're struggling with on the component Docker side. But nothing major.""This solution finds issues that are similar to what is found by Checkmarx, and it would be nice if the overlap could be eliminated.""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.""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.""I would like to see dynamic code analysis in the next version of the software."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"They do have a confusing licensing structure."

More Parasoft SOAtest Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Some of the plugins that were previously free are not free now.""We're using their free Community Edition version.""The costs for this application, for the kind of job it does, are pretty decent.""We are using the free, unlicensed version.""A low cost long-term solution for non-critical situations.""I am satisfied with the pricing.""I was using the Community Edition, which is available free of charge.""The developer edition is based on cost per lines of code."

Top Answer: SonarQube is an open source tool. The use of the developer edition leads me to think you mean SonarSource Developer edition. With SonarSource you will still need to run your own servers to host the… more »
