"As a QA Engineer "Soap-UI" is my day maker. It's very easy to test API's with this product."

Comments: It helps to complete my day to day testing tasks with more efficiently. It saves my time.

Pros: 01 . Any type of users (Beginners or Experts for API testing) can easily adopt to the user-interface and testing process by using "soap-UI" for couple of hours. And now i'm expert at this software.
02. By defining variables, you can customize parameter values without hard coding the values in whole test-case.
03. You can also use external data sheets to retrieve data to your executions.
04. You can simply send/receive multiple API calls and responses from different API's by just executing a single test suite.
05. Soap-UI provides very large scale of testing methods. examples : Load testing and Functional testing methods including security tests's.
06. SoapUI Open Source product is totally free for anyone who interested in web-service testing and also SoapUI Pro version gives you three types of reporting methods (Printable , Data Export , HTML Reports). I have used all of these versions personally. It's amazing.

Cons: 01. Some times it's little bit slow when you work with large test cases.
02. When generating test results, soap ui open source doesn't give you much options comparing to pro version.
03. you need to know about "Groovy Scripts" If you want to create automated test plans in SoapUI open source version.
04. Subscription plan prices are bit high if you planned to go through Pro versions. Other than that there are no any cons to mention about this product.

"SoapUI: A swiss Army Knife for Automation testing with an user friendly platform."

Comments: We have integrated the SoapUI with our project to achieve continuous delivery of the project. The security test feature is really helpful in checking the SQL injection and malicious code attachment with just few clicks. SoapUI is helping us to deploy the code to cloud with help of containers, as all this possible because of the robust integration of SoapUI with the other third part tools like Bamboo.

Pros: SoapUI is a swiss army knife for automation testing with user friendly user interface as it provides the wide range of testing features in a single pack. API functional testing allows us to add the test form which also scrutinize the third party API for vulnerability. While creating the test form we can also add and integrate it with the mock data to check the result for bulk raw or real data. Groovy code templates allow us to add the macros. The real time statistics show the detail view for running test. SoapUI by SMARTBEAR support is really impressive as you can get the help from experts when we are stuck some area in it.

Cons: MockResponse module should be more enhanced and simplified. Script libraries should be also in Open-Source version. Fuzzing Scan module for testing vulnerability is complex as a beginner. Learning curves are sharp but the proper documentation by SoapUI is covering it.

"SoapUI review"

Comments: IfI was given a choice to hire only manual testers, I will do this. Otherwise, I won't

Pros: This can be used by testers/business analysts who do not know how to code. You can still use Jenkins to invoke tests using API

Cons: Pro feature is not really needed if you can code. But if you are willing to learn their UI, it works good for everybody.

"De facto standard tool for API testing"

Comments: Ultimate tool to test API on functional way. Free package is a good ooportunity to give a try!

Pros: A multi-platform tool to test your APIs. Groovy scripting is available in product. It is under continuous development.

Cons: There is no built-in code completion for assertions and other Groovy scripts. The backward compatibility of software versions isn't complete. Load testing functionality is just partial.

"SOAPUI -Single Tool for all your API Testing (Manual as well automated Testing)"

Comments: When i started learning the tool , in beginning i faced difficult in understanding the tool and its features as the UI is bit complex to understand and make it user friendly in few sessions.
Also it has free and paid version , and in paid version you can find many good features for reporting as well.
In paid version you get various types of support from the vendor also you can try for trial of pro version.
Once i got used to the tool it was good experience to perform API testing on it .
It had wide range of features be it logging , reporting , passing parameters , authentication, assertions to test your test cases and many more .

Pros: The tool is good and very helpful if you want to perform end to end API testing of your application.
It supports both REST as well as SOAP protocol while creating a project which is under test.
The pro version of SOAPUI contains many useful features which you can use them easily.
We can import the properties from various different sources while performing API testing.
Also we can pass parameters and inputs from one step to another which is very required while performing integrated API testing between different features of the applications.
Also you can save the projects for your future uses.

Cons: when you are new to SOAPUI its been difficult to understand the tool in one go .it takes some time to understand and make the tool user friendly.
