Helped us to achieve timely testing of our APIs

What is our primary use case?

An automation tool not only always has the purpose of redefining the APIs after their functional or performance testing, but also provides an easier execution platform for the APIs so that they can be easily consumed by the future developers who are yet to work on them.

How has it helped my organization?

It did help us to achieve timely testing of our APIs and the right reasons to enhance their functionality or performance.

What is most valuable?

I've majorly worked on SoapUI Pro, LoadUI and Service Pro and found all of them equally useful and very easy to understand tools.

What needs improvement?

The tools that are stated by SmartBear speaks for itself, but when it comes to improvements, there could be a release which only aims for the…

Helped us by integrating the tests in the nightly build format. There were some issues in regards to the correct saving of projects.

What other advice do I have?

This product is quite useful for us. It could be even more useful if we had explored other functionalities (security, load tests) as well.

With this solution, we were able to develop tests about 3x faster than we did with Java.

What other advice do I have?

Evaluate this solution in a pilot project. Remember that, as test numbers grow, test maintenance will become an issue. Implement scripts to apply verification rules across the test XML files, to ensure that test authors are following team conventions. That will reduce the number of avoidable errors that usually get introduced into the test base.

There are a lot of bugs and it can sometimes be 'quirky.'

We have been using the solution for a year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We had a stability issue but it is related to our machines only having 4 GB RAM.

Aspects that have proved useful include the automatic generation of example requests and the Form view capabilities that allow for easy manipulation of a request for more basic testing.

The most valuable features are the possibility to run in such a fast way to many test cases simultaneously, SQL injection, and being able to save the tests as a WAR file.

I primarily use it to test XML/JSON requests and responses for APIs hosted by us and our vendors.

Valuable Features:

I primarily use Soap UI to test XML/JSON requests and responses for APIs hosted by us and our vendors. Also, SoapUI is easy to use since all my requests are saved in a single location so I can export and share them with my team.

Improvements to My Organization:

It helps me in speeding up testing process as all requests are saved and can be retrieved from a single location.

Room for Improvement:

The application has to be restarted after being used for an hour or so as it stops working after that.

Deployment Issues:

We encountered no issues with deployment.

Stability Issues:

With a big response size, the application hangs.

Scalability Issues:

We've encountered no issues with scaling it.

Other Advice:

It's easy to use and should not require any…

It's easy to add assertions in the Pro version. They should exclude test results out of projects (XML file).

What other advice do I have?

The product is a good solution for functional back end testing, but the price should be lower due to already mentioned problems, bugs. Use other product framework for small solutions, due to price/bugs. The advantage is that the product is handy for testers, user friendly; ability to use load, security tests or create mocks.

​The ability to analyse and simulate web services are clearly the main value.

What other advice do I have?

Ttry it, you may like it and you will know soon enough. Certainly worth the effort.

Vendor
I like the features for SOAP, REST and JDBC.

What other advice do I have?

I think this is a very easy tool to use for automated tests to run in a CI environment. You don’t have to be a “hardcore” programmer to use the tool but to get the best from it you should have some interest in programming/scripting.
