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.

Perfect little package to get a lot done!

Comments: Overall I recommend SOAP UI to just about everyone when in the context of this type of testing. Seven out of ten times the other person is already aware of the software or has used it in the past. It is truly one of the better-made software, and even though I know a great deal of how to use its features, I know that there is still a lot I don't even know about packed away within the menus.
I look forward to mastering this piece of software soon.

Pros: Once you understand how to execute a Soap service through the user-friendly UI, it is perfect for running through an extensive suite of tests and validations. With on-the-fly edits that you can make in-between cases, you can ensure that you're meeting full coverage results.

Cons: Sometimes when importing a WSDL, you may only need to pass a request which includes ONLY required fields. I wish SOAP UI would allow you to make a sample request which only consists of the required fields and leaves the optional fields out of the sample. This would make things faster when I need to work through a heavy workload, but it's still not a huge downside, just one of those nice to have features.

Amazing!

Comments: This software has been a big help in developing and testing SOAP statements for our platform. It has been feature filled enough to do everything we want while also being forgiving to someone like me who didn't come in as a professional.

Pros: This software is good for professionals with SOAP statements as well as forgiving for persons not familiar with them. The panes to view the statements and the results that return are very clear and easy to understand.

Cons: Even though it is beginner friendly, it can appear a bit overwhelming to users who may encounter the software for the first time.

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.

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.
