Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It stores good reports, as in, improved reports if compared with the SoapUI. It also has in-built security. You just need to switch and check the security testing. My team has never used it, but I know ReadyAPI provides those facilities as well."

"What we like the most is that it integrates with UC.""Paramterization and correlation are important features.""The solution can handle a huge amount of workloads, it's quite scalable.""The most useful aspect of the solution is that it provides agents in different geographic locations.""The reporting mechanism is a valuable feature that generates good reports.""It has good protocol coverage.""The most important feature for us is that it supports a lot of protocols because we support all of them, including HTTP, FTP, mainframe, and others.""I think that analytics is very good and that the analytics features are very powerful."

Cons
"This is an area for improvement with the tool. We unnecessarily use JMeter for some website testing, which we would like to avoid by introducing this tool for API and load testing because it provides load testing features."

More LoadUI Pro Cons »

"We are going to continue to use the product in the future, I recommend this product. However, those who are looking for only REST-based on the API, I would recommend some other tool because of the cost. There are others available on the market.""I would like to have better support for adding more users per load generator.""Licensing costs could be reduced.""The solution is very costly. The cost is very high, especially considering a lot of other resources are available now and they are less expensive. For a small organization, it is very difficult to sustain the costs involved in having the solution or the related fees""I would like to see better-licensing costs.""The debugging capability should be improved.""The product is pretty heavy and should be more lightweight.""The product is not stable and reliable in the version we are currently using."

Overview

Speed is just as important as accuracy when it comes to APIs. A slow API can grind the user experience to a halt, but you don't have to wait for things to go live before understanding how they will behave under heavy load.

With LoadUI Pro, you can reuse your functional API tests built on the industry's #1 open-source based API testing tool, SoapUI Pro to speed testing and reduce the time it takes you to deploy high performance REST and SOAP web services.

LoadRunner is the Micro Focus industry-standard software solution for application performance and load testing. LoadRunner stresses your entire system to isolate and identify potential client, network, and server bottlenecks, supporting performance testing of new technologies together with your existing, legacy applications.
