We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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.
The most valuable feature of AscentialTest for us is that it fully supports PowerBuilder.
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.
Classes are not as object-oriented as I would like, but I am a programmer and not QA so I expect a lot.
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.
