Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"One good feature is SoapUI's URL check, which allows you to check among the applications. I'm not just talking about the ones for Android. It has all kinds of multi-world tests that are really helpful.""The solution offers excellent integration capabilities.""The out-of-the-box support for the database is a valuable feature.""Using SoapUI's automation suites to run all our test cases saved us a lot of time. Running 300 test cases takes about three to four days. When you automate all that, it takes only two to three hours.""The solution scales well.""The interface is user-friendly.""It's a very simple solution to use.""It clearly makes it easy to test APIs based on the SOAP protocol. We are a logistics company, and we have lots of tracking calls coming in. We provide APIs for tracking services, and it makes sense for us to use SoapUI to test them thoroughly."

"Performance-wise, it is a great tool.""The most valuable features are tools like IntelliSense and ReSharper.""The stability has always been very good.""Easy to use and easily scalable.""The ability to quickly make your own components has been valuable.""It is a very common and strong product. A lot of support is available for this product.""It is very easy to use. You can handle a lot of things together at once in one package, which is a good point for us.""I was satisfied with the support given by customer service."

Cons
"Occasionally, when you are saving, the solution can hang.""The documentation needs to be improved because the interface is not easy for a first-time user.""If the load and bare minimum could be defined, I would give this solution a higher rating.""SoapUI would benefit from some more customization abilities. It's a good interface, but it would be nice if they added the ability to build custom dashboards where the user can do their own bar graphs and pie charts.""Grouping of the cases is not possible in SoapUI, to my knowledge. When working with critical cases or the, we were not able to group them properly. We can definitely create a suite and add them there, but within a whole suite, we have to identify them, which was not easy.""Stability has been an issue for us. It needs to be looked at and made a bit better.""It is limited to scope and risk services only. It does have some support for JMS, but it is not out-of-the-box; you have to do some tweaks here and there.""There are no bugs or glitches, but a few features available only in the Pro version could be made available in the open-source version. Some of the features do not necessarily need to be only available to Pro users. The data generator would be really useful for the open-source version users."

"One of the problems with this solution is you need to be highly technically skilled to operate it, it is not for everyone.""The pricing of this solution should be lowered.""There are too many features with the product and I would like there to be less.""It needs more integration with other tools for monitoring. Microsoft also needs to make it more modern to make it work with microservices and the cloud. It is a bit outdated currently.""The solution is quite expensive.""The integration with Git needs improving because it is a bit disjointed and unpredictable.""In Visual Studio we still don't have anything which can pinpoint memory leaks on a certain code line.""It is not good in terms of performance. When you open Visual Studio, you have to wait for a while to process your code. It uses a lot of resources and has a lot of features. If we could disable some of the features, it would be lighter and faster to use. Nowadays, for some of the projects, we use VS Code for JavaScript or Python. VS Code is very light and easy to use, whereas, in Visual Studio, we have to wait because it takes time to compile or run a project. It has a lot of competitors in terms of performance, such as Intelligent ID. Intelligent ID is very easy to use. It has many features, and it is lighter to use than Visual Studio. In terms of error handling, sometimes, it shows an error before you finish your code, which can be improved. It would be good if it has a version for Linux. I use VS Code on Linux, but I am not sure if Visual Studio has a version for Linux."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I think the number of users is also limited, considering how much we pay."
  • "My understanding is that the pricing is okay, however, that's taken care of by our procurement team. It's around $5,000 for three years."
  • "The Pro version can be expensive for some companies. There are no costs in addition to the licensing fees."
  • "We have team members who are working in shifts, and it is not possible for us to utilize a single license on a single piece of hardware so that multiple team members can use it. We have to take out multiple licenses for each team member."
