Pros
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.If you want something that’s not provided out of the box, then you can write it yourself and integrate it with SOAtest.Automatic testing is the most valuable feature.The testing time is shortened because we generate test data automatically with SOAtest.Every imaginable source in the entire world of information technology can be accessed and used.We do a lot of web services testing and REST services testing. That is the focus of this product.Generating new messages, based on the existing .EDN and .XML messages, is a crucial part or the testing project that I’m currently in.

It is very good at identifying technical debt.It easily ties into our continuous integration pipeline.With SonarQube's web interface, it is easy to drill down to see the individual problems, but also to look at the project from above and get the big picture, with possible larger problem areas.Code Convention: Using the tool to implement some sort of coding convention is really useful and ensures that the code is consistent no matter how many contributors.It's enabled us to improve software quality and help us to disseminate best practices.I follow Quality Gate's graduation model within organization, and it is extremely helpful for me to benchmark products.The customizable dashboard and ability to include results and coverage from unit test and other static analysis code tools.Issue Explanations: Documentation with detailed samples. Helps in growing technical knowledge and re-writing logic to conforming solutions.

Cons
Reports could be customized and more descriptive according to the user's or company's requirements.Reporting facilities can be better.Compatibility with HTTP 1.1 and TLS 1.2 needs to be improved.During the process of working with SOAtest and building test cases, the .TST files will grow. A negative side effect is that saving your changes takes more time.Enabling/disabling an optional element of an XML request is only possible if a data source (e.g., Excel sheet) is connected to the test. Otherwise, the option is not available at all in the drop-down menu.The feedback that we received from the DevOps of our organization was that the tool was a little heavy from the transformation perspective.Parasoft SOAtest has an internal refresh function where you can refresh the software to show the changes you’ve made in your projects. Unfortunately this function does not work properly, because it often does not show the changes after you’ve hit te refresh button a few times.

I find it is light on the security side.An improvement is with false positives. Sometimes the tool can say there is an issue in your code but, really, you have to do things in a certain way due to external dependencies, and I think it's very hard to indicate this is the case.A better design of the interface and add some new rules.When we have a thousand products published over it, we expect it to be more efficient in terms of serving requests from the browser.Ease of use/interface.It requires advanced heuristics to recognize more complex constructs that could be disregarded as issues.There is need for support for the additional languages and ease of use in adding new rules for detecting issues.We had some issues where the Quality Gate check sometimes gets stuck and it is unclear.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We are completed satisfied with Parasoft SOAtest. The ROI is more than 95%.The license price is a little expensive, but it provides a better outcome in terms of the end-to-end automation process.It is an expensive product, so think carefully about whether it fits your purposes and is the right tool for you.I think it would be a great step to decrease the price of the licenses.The cost of Parasoft seems to have gotten higher with a projection that wasn't really stipulated for our company. They've done a tremendous job at negotiating those deals.From what I understand, Parasoft SOAtest isn’t the cheapest option. But it has a lot to offer.

The price point on SonarQube is good.The licence is standard open source licensingThis product is open source and very convenient.People can try the free licenses and later can seek buying plugins/support, etc. once they started liking it.Get the paid version which allows the customized dashboard and provides technical support.We did not purchase a license (required for C++ support), but this option was considered.This is open source.
