The most valuable features for me are that Katalon Studio is powerful and yet easy-to-use. This solution — even in comparison to Selenium, which we were using previously — is a little bit more simple from a user's standpoint. It is interesting because it is not only focused on the end-user but interface testing — and that includes API testing. Even if we do not generally need to use it, it is interesting. We are a university and we have a very small department that is doing development testing of software. Most of the projects are not API-based. We still are employing some old client-server versions and software architecture. But the capability is still interesting looking forward. I have worked with the record and replay feature which helps to create test cases. It is quite useful for assisting in testing a user interface and a very good experience for students' understanding of procedures. View full review »

There is a free version of the solution. The best thing about the solution is that there is a record and playback functionality. The solution allows for specific object files. The solution has great multi-parallel languages that work in the facilities here. View full review »

The most important feature is the Jenkins integration; it is pretty straight forward and allows us to run nightly builds. The integration with Slack is very helpful. The Katalon Analytical Studio, which is directly integrated, offers better reporting capabilities, which is a good feature. View full review »

This solution is written in Groovy, which means that we can write Groovy scripts that work with it. We can write code in Java and it is easy to link to other JARs that we find on the internet, which is very handy. From a user's perspective, this solution is better than Micro Focus UFT. The documentation for this solution could be improved. However, it is a freeware, and the documentation is still better than that of UFT. View full review »

The most valuable feature is the capability of doing end-to-end testing for both web and mobile apps. The basic framework and project organization is very good. Data design testing capabilities are useful. View full review »

The most valuable feature is that the browser and the API testing is available in a single tool, and I don't have to look at other options. The flexibility that it offers is something that I like. It supports the Cucumber BDD framework. View full review »

The Keyword feature is very good to use in your test cases. There are lots of inbuilt Keyword features already there to use, and one can write their own for use in respective test cases. Less Java knowledge is required to write a keyword. This solution is very user-friendly to learn and implement, and less technical knowledge is required to handle automation. View full review »

The most valuable feature is the Element capture. It is capable of scanning the application, recording, and capturing the elements. You can develop a Selenium script and execute it in Katalon Studio. There are multiple ways that you can guarantee the functionality of RPA frameworks. Katalon makes it easy for the automation engineer to create automation scripts. There are lots of script creation options including for the desktop and the API. It is easy for a non-technical person to use and adopt. View full review »

Easy to learn, I don't need to have any expertise in software development. This tool has a custom chat in the IDE, a good tutorial, and I can always update the solution. I like to work with Gherkin language, and I think that I can have results very soon with Selenium. On the other hand, in the same framework, I can work with web applications, mobile applications or web services, and I can record a test in one browser and run it in another browser.
