October 31, 2014 Comments Off on Ready! API and SoapUI NG Pro: the next step in delivering mission-critical APIs
I’ve been designing, developing, and testing APIs for many years. APIs used to be of interest primarily to narrow constituencies such as architects and developers. That’s no longer the case: today, APIs constitute the foundation of Service Oriented Architecture, and thus most modern applications.
SoapUI has long been considered the premier service-testing tool. Over the past 7 years, WiseClouds has participated in the incredible growth of the SoapUI ecosystem by offering training, certification, and consulting services.
From its inception, SoapUI has been an elegant, powerful technology, but as the years have gone by, it’s matured into something much more than a testing tool. In fact, it’s now a platform containing all the technology necessary to place an API into service.
I’m very excited about the direction the product is taking, with the release of Ready! API containing SoapUI NG (next generation) and related technologies for service virtualization, load testing, and security. We’re expanding our training classes and certification to cover all of this new functionality.
I’ll be blogging about some of the new capabilities in Ready! API, but for now you can learn more here.
