Good reporting as well as integration with Jenkins and Slack, but it crashes often

What is our primary use case?

We evaluated Katalon Studio along with Postman and SoapUI to be part of our testing framework. We used it mainly for microservices, API automation, and testing API endpoints. We click one button to have it run all of the tests and generate a report.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most important feature is the Jenkins integration; it is pretty straight forward and allows us to run nightly builds."
  • "It would be helpful to have an automatic save feature."

What other advice do I have?

Products such as this one are a byproduct of artificial intelligence. It comes up with very nice code snippets that we can use, and it is good to see the industry moving forward in this aspect. The future is AI and Katalon is a part of that. When it comes to testing RESTful APIs, this is a good solution but in the alternative, Postman is out there. That is the one that we ultimately chose to implement. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Good performance testing and reporting, helpful user community, but it hangs with too many concurrent threads

What is our primary use case?

We use Apache JMeter for lower-end performance testing. Sometimes we use it for Rest API testing, as well.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature in JMeter is the Thread Group, which helps us to see whether the performance is good."
  • "Automation is difficult in JMeter."

What other advice do I have?

This is a good solution but many features would have to be added to use this tool alone. Postman has more features, so JMeter is really only good for performance testing. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
