Benefits and Results
SmartBear SoapUI Pro was immediately embraced by the Atena testers because it’s so easy to use and allows them to focus on testing instead of learning new API skills. “SoapUI Pro helps us deliver a dynamite product and it brings our testers and developers together in a collaborative testing environment.”
The SmartBear solution has enabled the Atena software development team to create tests once and then run them in multiple environments with different configurations. “We can run more tests so that we have greater assurance that our custom software is working well,” Muchewicz points out. “We now run above 1,000 test cases after each code release—about five times per day. Before, when we conducted manual regression testing, we could only run about 200 test cases once per day because they took about three hours.”
In addition to speeding up the regression process 25X—by increasing the number of test cases per day from 200 to 5000—SoapUI Pro helps the development team communicate by bringing testers together on one API testing platform that they all understand. “The solution gets us on the same page, speaking the same language when discussing API test results,” Muchewicz explains. “The testers can more easily understand what the developers are doing with their code, and the developers can more easily understand the feedback they receive from the testers.”
When developers conduct their own testing, SoapUI Pro reduces the amount of time they need to spend on testing. They just click a button and can see the quality of code right away. This allows them to focus more time on developing the code.
The feedback on the API tests has also helped the developers improve their coding. Over time, there have been fewer errors to fix, and the developers now have clearer feedback on the quality of their code in their environment, not the testing environment.
“In the end, SoapUI Pro is helping us produce better custom software for one of our most important clients” Muchewicz says.
- Ensure GUI layer works for custom application developed for a major client.
- Streamline and accelerate API testing to run above 1,000 tests multiple times per day.
- Run automatic testing directly without using the GUI.
- Transfer API tests between different development environments.
- Enable testers and developers to test APIs with minimal knowledge about test automation.
