Benefits and Results
SmartBear SoapUI Pro has now been in use at Davinci for about six years and continues to play a key role in the overall software development lifecycle. Every solution component has an API service, so the mortgage application suite, for example, contains more than 100 APIs that are tested using SoapUI Pro.
“We particularly like that SoapUI Pro allows us to automate the complete API testing process from start-to-end,” Loeff says. “This is particularly important when two or more team members from different offices collaborate on API testing.”
Loeff and his team found that the testing solution is so easy to use that business consultants—who are not technical developers or testers—can create fully-automated API test cases. No script knowledge is required.
“With SoapUI Pro as one of our key tools, we can better test our solutions and expand the testing team so we can conduct testing more quickly,” Loeff says. “This means solutions go to market quicker, and we can ensure the interfaces perform as our customers expect.”
The results of each SoapUI Pro test also provide feedback that allows the Davinci team to build better test cases over time. This has helped decrease test-creation time, which further accelerates the software development process.
SoapUI Pro has also proven helpful for Davinci clients that integrate Davinci code with other applications. “When we work with a new client, we point them to the free open source version of SoapUI and provide a set of test goals,” Loeff explains. “They can use SoapUI in their other applications to see if the connections to our software work and what the response will look like to end users.”
This joint use of the SmartBear solutions makes it easier for clients to integrate Davinci software code with other software solutions. “The role SoapUI Pro plays in testing APIs is key in helping us work together with our clients,” Loeff concludes. “We are better positioned to ensure financial institutions can enhance their loan and mortgage processes by leveraging the combination of our software and their other software solutions.”
