NOTE! The Maven 1 plugins has been deprecated since SoapUI version 3.6 and will no longer recive any updates.

The soapUI Maven plugin for maven 1.x allows you to run soapUI functional and load tests within a maven build.

Prior to installing a new version of the plugin, you should delete any old versions from you local cache, repository, maven installation.

Download the latest version of the plugin from sourceforge soapUI Downloads or install it directly from the command line:

maven plugin:download -DgroupId=eviware -DartifactId=maven-soapui-plugin 
-Dversion=1.6 -Dmaven.repo.remote=

Alternatively you can specify a dependency directly in your project.xml;


In this case, don't forget to add the soapUI repository to your repository list in;


soapUI Maven Plugin Usage

Download and install the plugin as described above. By default, it will look for a soapUI project file named${pom.artifactId}-soapui-project.xml, you can override this by setting with the maven.soapui.project property.

Run functional tests with

maven soapui:test

and load tests with

maven soapui:loadtest

The plugin will load the specified project file and run all TestCases available in all TestSuites. If you want to narrow down which TestSuites/TestCases/LoadTest to run, use the maven.soapui.test.testsuitemaven.soapui.test.testcaseand maven.soapui.test.loadtest properties for that purpose.

If you want to change the service endpoint, host, username, password or domain used by the TestRequests in the executed TestCases, set this with one of the maven.soapui.test.XX properties, for example

maven soapui:test -Dmaven.soapui.test.endpoint=

Be aware that this will set the endpoint for all TestRequests executed, you might need to narrow down which TestCase to run if you have multiple TestCases testing multiple services.

For example if you have 2 TestSuites, each testing its own service in your project, you could run these as follows;

maven soapui:test -Dmaven.soapui.test.testsuite=TestSuite1 

followed by

maven soapui:test -Dmaven.soapui.test.testsuite=TestSuite2 

Turn on creation of simple reports as described for the command line SoapUITestCaseRunner and SoapUITestCaseRunner runners with the properties.

Sample Outputs from the Maven plugin

Here comes an example output when running soapUI functional tests through maven as described above using the sample project included in the offline distribution:
