What is most valuable?

* Fast and easy automated tests for UI * Interfaces (SOAP, REST) * Additional database queries * Easy validations on responses (soap, rest, json, sql, Gui) Most valuable… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It provides us with fast(er) test results, more predictable results and automatic (regression) test runs outside the employee workstations. This tooling made us more agile… more»

What needs improvement?

In general, its user-friendliness needs a little improvement since there are a few bugs that still remain. It needs to be (possibly) more lightweight and have more… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Use floating licenses, so it’s not attached to one workstation. Furthermore, the pricing is something for the staff to handle, not for us. ;)

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Initially, we were using some lightweight open-source (free) tools, but none met with our requirements fully; so we switched solutions.

What other advice do I have?

Start off simple. Build your test setup from there. Do think about setting up some specific test cases as building blocks (reference material) for other test scenarios to… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We mainly looked into the SoapUI solution, along with some Selenium software and besides that, other stand-alone database tooling options. We also evaluated manual… more»

What is most valuable?

* Diff control tool * Reporting * Different service types of support (SOAP, REST, SAP RFC, and UI recording) * Third-party tool integration: GitHub and Jenkins. * Plug and… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Parasoft SOAtest has improved the quality of our automated web services, which can be easily implemented through service chaining and service virtualization. The best… more»

What needs improvement?

Reports could be customized and more descriptive according to the user's or company's requirements.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is a commercial tool. The license price is a little expensive, but it provides a better outcome in terms of the end-to-end automation process.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We have been using this solution for more than 6.7 years. I have used other solutions as well, but I did not get proper support during our testing due to the constraints… more»

What other advice do I have?

I have been using this solution for more than six years. I have not found any issues while doing automation.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

While evaluating tools for web service testing, I tried different solutions (freeware and highly-used), but they did not provide some mechanism/features that I could test… more»

What is most valuable?

They have a feature where they can record traffic and create tests on the report traffic. That is one of the most valuable features that we've found. So we can run our UI automation tests and directly create services tests from that, which… more»

What needs improvement?

The product is very slow to start up, and that is a bit of a problem, actually. It is not as fast and it's a bit clunky, especially if you use it for the whole day or for a long time, it doesn't save the data, for example. So, it's a bit… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

They do have a confusing licensing structure. Their licensing structure is really complex and being able to find out the right product for you, for an organization specifically, is a bit harder, but once you find the thing, their… more»

What other advice do I have?

It is a good solution, and if you're looking to migrate from an existing toolset as well, it's a pretty good solution. It is quite vast, and they have a lot of other toolsets in there. It has a lot of other toolsets like virtualize which is… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate the other options in the market, Tosca and SoapUI, which we evaluated. Ultimately, we went with this tool.

Jul 30 2017

What is most valuable?

Automated execution and chaining of test validators is the most valuable feature; it is easily extensible via the built-in custom scripting API.

How has it helped my organization?

It has allowed us to build a large library of repeatable automated tests that are able to be quickly executed on demand. This builds a solid foundation for future initiatives expanding into a more… more»

What needs improvement?

Memory Management suffers when using solutions other than the data repository for managing the test cases.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

If you plan on using a floating-license model, plan on a buffer of at least 10 user tokens between the maximum allocated by your license and the expected usage for the tool.

What other advice do I have?

Keep your test scenarios small and focused rather than trying to cover an entire web service with one scenario.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I looked at SoapUI NG Pro.
