SoapUI 5.1 – The Plugged In Release

We’re happy to announce the release of SoapUI 5.1, the next installment for SoapUI Pro users that is designed to make SoapUI easier to use for all of our users, and also provide our REST users with more complete functionality. This release includes improvements to both license management and JSON support, as well as a new plug-in framework that we're very excited to share with you.
Not only is it now easier to build SoapUI plug-ins but we've also made it easier to find them. Our shiny new plug-in manager lists all of the available plug-ins and gives you a one-click Install for most of them. Don't see what you're looking for? We've made it simple to build your own and share it with the whole community of SoapUI Pro users.Here’s a quick breakdown of what’s new:

Point-and-Click Testing for JSON

Point-and-Click Testing for JSON


You know the power of our point-and-click testing for XML - now that same power is available for JSON. You can do property transfers and add assertions for JSON with a simple right click.

Plug-in Manager

Everyone loves to add their own touch and we know our users have some of the greatest ideas. So we've improved our plug-in framework to make it easier to build and deploy plug-ins for SoapUI. We've also added a Plug-In Manager so you can see available plug-ins and install them.
