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.

Multiple scanning engines to automate many different applications.Object Identification Wizard.Image recognition: It has allowed us to automate a GUI section of our product which involves drawing different topologies.Good use in Agile workshops, where the person needs to conceptualize the tests before the developer provides the complete application interface.The tool can be handled without any knowledge in parameterisation, especially the TestCaseDesign which makes the tool mighty and stable.The model-based scriptless automation is the most valuable feature because it needs less maintenance as compared to script-based automation.This tool has test data management capability along with test management.With one click, it will scan all the elements on the screen, so that the user can select the required elements for automation tests.

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.

The reporting function was lacking in usability and detail.Security, UI, and basic performance improvements could be done to the product to enhance its use.Running the regression – if multiple lists are executed at once or if a list contains 200+ tests, it’s a pain to stop the execution.Might have a learning curve, as it does not follow the traditional Record-Play functionality, but tests have to be built from requirements or Agile story cards.The Test Management options are still weak - improvement is outlined, but not yet visible. IParallel execution is not yet implemented for Tosca. This means you can't execute the same test case on multiple machines remotely.ScratchBook execution needs to be improved as Tosca crashes multiple times.They need to improve on the reports after the execution of automation tests, since all the current organizations are looking for detailed graphical reports.

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 pricing is high, but altogether it offers you the ability to automate all sorts of applications: desktop, web, mobile, etc.Expensive, but for long-term projects, it is paying back.​It is an expensive tool compared to other test automation tools. It has a lot of advantages over other tools.
