Mastering SoapUI

By: Pranai Nandan, Surendra Mohan

Overview of this book

SoapUI is an open-source cross-platform testing application that provides complete test coverage and supports all the standard protocols and technologies. This book includes real-time examples of implementing SoapUI to achieve quality and business assurance. Starting with the features and functionalities of SoapUI, the book will then focus on functional testing, load testing, and security testing of web services. Furthermore, you will learn how to automate your services and then design data-driven, keyword-driven, and hybrid-driven frameworks in SoapUI. Then the book will show you how to test UIs and services using SoapUI with the help of Selenium. You will also learn how to integrate SoapUI with Jenkins for CI and SoapUI test with QC with backward- and forward-compatibility. The final part of the book will show you how to virtualize a service response in SoapUI using Service Mocking. You will finish the journey by discovering the best practices for SoapUI test automation and preparing yourself for the online certification of SoapUI.

Performance testing in the SOA world

Performance testing in an SOA application is done a bit differently compared to any other architecture. We don't just need to validate performance requirements of single service components but also test the orchestration, as well as the third-party services.

We can categorize performance testing in the following way:

  • Component level

  • Scenario level

  • System level

Let's go through them in detail.

Component level: When we test the performance of a particular service in isolation it is known as component level performance testing.

Here we test if the response time of the service is within acceptable limits and we also analyze the behavior of the service under different types of performance tests.

This type of performance test is helpful to evaluate the performance of the service in isolation and we get the results early.

We can perform this type of testing easily using SoapUI. We will see this in the coming sections.

Scenario level: When we are done with component...
