SmartBear has acquired loadUI Pro and soapUI july last year and had since integrated both the produts into its technology stack. This launch signifies a pro version of loadUI which boasts rich user experience and enterprise-ready load test environment that generates scalable, high-volume, real-world load from any number of local and remote computers. Along with this it also features performance monitoring of Web Services and APIs under load to assess impact on CPU and RAM usage, database performance and resource utilization, and identify the root causes of bottlenecks anywhere in the server stack.
This acquisition last year of loadUI and soapUI has increased the customer base of SmartBear by 800000 overnight. Version 4.5 of soapUI provides new features to improve the overall quality and management of testing projects. New test debugging helps users streamline test creation, improved assertion simplifies the test validation process, and multi-environment support enables quick changes between test environments. The new Test On Demand feature enables users to extend testing beyond the desktop and network by running tests from two external locations in SmartBear’s monitoring cloud for free. Additionally, soapUI 4.5 provides an improved experience for Mac users and addresses several Mac OS X issues.
