If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Parasoft SOAtest, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
In general, this is a hassle free, user friendly tool and it doesn't require much knowledge if you're using the manual testing. Automated testing is also good but requires some knowledge in that field. It has some great features. It's a good tool compared to some of the other paid tools; input and output can be stored before extension and there is also a verification assessment that can be implemented by using some different methodologies inside the tool. If the licensing cost is suitable then I recommend this solution. If you have automation people with in-depth knowledge in coding that will be helpful. I rate this solution a seven out of 10.
It is a good solution, and if you're looking to migrate from an existing toolset as well, it's a pretty good solution. It is quite vast, and they have a lot of other toolsets in there. It has a lot of other toolsets like virtualize which is really helpful. The toolset is really good, I'm really impressed with it. In the base licensing, we would like to have CLI support included because CLI is the most basic stuff that we need. Currently, it's a separate licensing that we need for that. If I'm getting an application and I need to use it. I would like to use the command line interface as well. I would expect that to be part of the base licensing. I would rate this solution at an eight and a half out of ten.
I have been using this solution for more than six years. I have not found any issues while doing automation.
