Getting started with a new application is always a challenge, no matter how complex it is. In order to make getting started with SoapUI easier for you, SoapUI comes with a sample SoapUI Project file that can be used as reference and inspiration.
It illustrates some of the basic concepts of SoapUI and can be used as a SoapUI starting point; try out the project, run the included MockService and the included tests in order familiarize yourself with the s SoapUI interface, and then move on to the Your First SoapUI Project tutorial.
Here are the main concepts illustrated in the SoapUI Project.
- Web Service Mocking
- Web Service Inspection
- Functional Tests of Web Services
- Web Service Load Tests
Let start by opening a project.
- Right click on Project Node in the navigator and select Import Project
A Select SoapUI Project dialog will open.

Now that we have the project loaded; let's move to Web Service Mocking!
