SoapUI 4.6.4 – REST In Progress
The REST is coming! In 4.6 we’ve started the journey of dramatically improving the REST-testing support in SoapUI and SoapUI Pro. While SoapUI has supported REST-testing since version 2.5, we really want to make it more accessible for all REST testers out there. In this first REST-improving release we’ve started this journey by pivoting SoapUI to be more aligned to the Pragmatic REST approach, and also making the time-to-test much shorter and easier. We really want to know your feedback regarding this release, and what you would like to see in upcoming REST-releases. Help us out by giving us your feedback. Without further ado, here’s a few of the things that are new in 4.6.
Easy REST-Project Creation
It’s now much easier to get started with a REST-project, using only a URI as input. Get going with REST-testing in no time.
Easy REST URI Splitting
SoapUI will now automatically split URIs into Endpoint, Resource, and Query. Easily get a good overview of how your testcase is set up.
Template and Query Extraction
Extraction of template and query parameters are now done automatically. Spend less time setting things up, and more time testing.
Level And Type Assignment
Parameters will now automatically have Level and Type assigned to them, meaning you no longer need to define this when adding the URI.
Improved Parameter Editing
Add, delete, or update parameters directly in the Request Editor. No more need to open up the Method and Resource Editors. Of course, any changes made in the Request Editor are propogated to the TestSteps.
