Problem: During the development process the WSDL is constantly changing - if you don’t notice that the WSDL has changed, your tests are going to break. Along with changing all messages related to certain WSDL updates, property transfers and Xpath expressions may need to be updated. Also instead of spending time writing new tests, you need to spend more time updating your old tests to fit them to new WSDL.
Solution: The WSDL refactoring in SoapUI Pro easily updates all of your tests by providing a simple wizard that allows you to map old message elements to new ones instead of manually looking at, and replacing, project code. This feature also allows you to manually override or discard changes created by SoapUI during the process, ensuring that the correct result comes out in the end. By using SoapUI Pro Refactoring you'll not only increase your test quality, but decrease the time invested while also minimizing the risks.
