NOTE! As of version 5.1.0 some users might experience problems with the maven plugin. If youare getting a NoClassDefFoundError: org/reflections/Configuration or org/apache/poi/ss/usermodel/Workbook when running the plugin, please add the reflections dependency explicitly as described below:
<plugin>
<groupId>com.smartbear.soapui</groupId>
<artifactId>soapui-pro-maven-plugin</artifactId>
<version>5.1.1</version>
<configuration>
</configuration>
<dependencies>
<dependency>
<groupId>org.reflections</groupId>
<artifactId>reflections</artifactId>
<version>0.9.9-RC1</version>

</dependency>
<dependency>
<groupId>org.apache.poi</groupId>
<artifactId>poi-ooxml</artifactId>
<version>3.10-FINAL</version>
</dependency>
</dependencies>
</plugin>
Please use this workaround while we work to resolve the issue permanently.

1. Basic Configuration

SoapUI includes a Maven (version 2 and above) plugin for running SoapUI tests and mocks during a Maven build.
In the examples below we're using the 4.6.1 version of the plugins. Please see our public SoapUI Open Source and SoapUI Pro Maven repositories for which versions that are currently available.
Note that we're also providing maintenance build versions of the plugins (marked with a -m-SNAPSHOT suffix).

Note! If integrating with SoapUI Pro, use the Pro version of the plugin.

Prior to using the plugin, add the SmartBear Maven 2 repository either to your project or settings.xml:

<pluginRepositories>
    <pluginRepository>
        <id>smartbear-sweden-plugin-repository</id>
        <url>http://www.soapui.org/repository/maven2/</url>
    </pluginRepository>
</pluginRepositories>


Then, add the SoapUI plugin to your pom.xml:

<plugins>
<plugin>
<groupId>com.smartbear.soapui</groupId>
<artifactId>soapui-maven-plugin</artifactId>
<version>4.6.1</version>
<configuration>
<projectFile>simple-test-soapui-project.xml</projectFile>
<projectProperties>
<value>message=Hello World!</value>
</projectProperties>
</configuration>
</plugin>
</plugins>

 

2. Running Tests

Run functional tests with

mvn com.smartbear.soapui:soapui-maven-plugin:4.6.1:test

loadtests with

mvn com.smartbear.soapui:soapui-maven-plugin:4.6.1:loadtest

and MockServices with

mvn com.smartbear.soapui:soapui-maven-plugin:4.6.1:mock

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 testSuite, testCase and loadTest properties for that purpose.

3. Integrated Tools

If you configure any of the integrated code generation tools in SoapUI for an interface in your project, you can invoke this code generation functionality with

mvn com.smartbear.soapui:soapui-maven-plugin:4.6.1:tool

which could be configured in the Maven 2 build process as part of the generate-sources step:

<plugins>
  <plugin>
    <groupId>com.smartbear.soapui</groupId>
    <artifactId>soapui-maven-plugin</artifactId>
    <version>4.6.1</version>
    <configuration>
         <projectFile>sample-soapui-project.xml</projectFile>
         <testSuite>OleTest</testSuite>
         <iface>IOrderService</iface>
         <tool>wsi,axis1,axis2</tool>
         <settingsFile>C:\workspace\core\soapui-settings.xml</settingsFile>
     </configuration>
    <executions>
        <execution>
            <phase>generate-sources</phase>
            <goals>
              <goal>generate</goal>
            </goals>
        </execution>
      </executions>
  </plugin>
</plugins>

Several tools can be specified in a comma separated list, so the above example would run both WS-I reports and configured code generation for both Axis1 and Axis2. Also, the SoapUI settings file has been specified since it contains tool paths and global WS-I settings

4. Plugin Goals
