An automated Web Services API testing tool that utilizes the same test cases for functional and performance testing.
SOAPSonar is focussed on reducing the time and complexity required to develop and maintain test cases. Testing each individual service independently of the client application, while still chaining the test workflow for automation. The creation and execution of these test cases requires no programming, scripting skills or script maintenance. The ability to define a number of variable types, automation data sources, success criteria and baselines ensures comprehensive coverage. The same test cases can be used for Functional, Regression and Performance testing, further reducing test development time. This reduced complexity, increases the time available for testing, increases coverage and allows for earlier identification of issues.
