Ready! API 1.2 is released!

Posted on 16 February 2015
SmartBear have released Ready! API 1.2. It provides enhancements to existing tools SoapUI NG Pro and ServiceV Pro, and introduces the availability of LoadUI NG Pro, the next generation of API load testing tools from SmartBear. This brand new tool updates the user interface to be far more intuitive and easy to use. If you are familiar with the previous versions of LoadUI and LoadUI Pro, you will want to test drive our newest version - it's a big departure from those tools.

What's New in Ready! API 1.2?

LoadUI NG Pro

As with all Ready! API tools, there is a free tier of base functionality that comes with the purchase of any other Ready! API tool, as well as a powerful professional version that delivers even more functionality.

LoadUI NG (Base)

Compared to the previous versions of LoadUI, Ready! API contains these improvements:

    While the process of creating a load test is the same, we have a much more intuitive interface
    You can create your load test then apply it to different test cases without ever leaving your load test
    Our measurements are no longer just thread-based; you can create complex or simple scenarios that mimic real world behavior by using virtual users, transaction rate, or threads
    Ability to set wait time for all of your load strategies
    Metrics and statistics available immediately on your dashboard for real-time reporting

LoadUI NG Pro

With the commercial version of LoadUI NG, you get all the same great features and ease of use, but you also get additional power:

    Tiered levels that allow you to choose the package that is right for you/li>
    Complete support for SOAP and REST
    Tight integration with SoapUI NG so you can use your API functional tests as a starting point
    The ability to define think time within your tests so you can better simulate real user behavior with your API
    Detailed reporting
    Performance assertions to easily define SLAs or Quality of Service levels
    Test run comparisons so you can review performance trends over time

SoapUI NG Pro

This latest release for SoapUI NG Pro 1.2 includes the following enhancements:

    You can now control virts from within your functional tests by incorporating Groovy scripts that manage the Virtrunner
    We've created an Auth Manager that lets you set up authentication profiles for your REST APIs and manage them across the test steps in your project

ServiceV Pro

The latest release for ServiceV Pro 1.2 includes the following enhancements:

    We've added more power to the data-driven feature of the ServiceV Pro by allowing you to connect your Virts to a database using our JDBC driver
    You can now generate data for on-the-fly virt responses
    You can now simulate multiple authentication types
    When using ServiceV Pro with the VirtServer, you can now control multiple virts simultaneously, including dragging them from your local instance to the VirtServer
    We've added a sample project so you can see how API virtualization works
