Why use SoapUI Pro for Functional Testing?
While the Open Source version can be seen as the Swiss-Army knife for testing, SoapUI Pro is the tool with the sharpest edge. Applied to the Functional Testing area, SoapUI Pro focus on enhancing efficiency and usability. With Point and Click Testing, you can drag and drop instead of manually writing the code. The Form Editor creates a form from your request, further eliminating the need for you to spend time on repetitive coding. These functions make, in combination with The Outline Editor who simplifies and exposes the XML structure, your testing more fun and less time consuming. If creativity, flow and speed are important to you as a tester, SoapUI Pro is too.
Web Service Sample Project
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.
- Select the project file sample-soapui-pro-project.xml or sample-soapui-project.xml from the tutorial folder user-dir/soapUI-Tutorials (Note that you won't have this folder in case you unchecked the option during the installation).
- The Sample Project will be shown in the SoapUI Navigator.
Now that we have the project loaded; let's move to Web Service Mocking!
