A tool for Testing Web Services, including SOAP, RESTful, and HTTP-based services, is called SoapUI. With a commercial partner called ReadyAPI that offers further capabilities for businesses with mission-critical Web Services, SoapUI is an Open Source, totally Free solution.
The de facto standard for API Service Testing is SoapUI, which has been downloaded more than 3 Million times. This indicates that there is a wealth of information on the technology available.

What is SoapUI?
Before developing any code in Java, C#, or any other language, SoapUI may be used to test Partner WSDL, corporate WSDL, Tooling API, and Metadata API to analyze capabilities and response from Salesforce. Many people rely on SoapUI for testing JMS, REST, JDBC, and AMF. They integrate SoapUI into their IDEs (IntelliJ, NetBeans, and Eclipse), continuous integration builds, API monitoring, and other processes. There are several Inventive Applications for SoapUI out there.
Uses of SoapUI?
Entire RESTful API & SOAP Web Service Testing may be done with SoapUI.
Functional testing, performance testing, interoperability testing, regression testing, and many other types of testing are all possible. Our goal is to make it simple to start testing. For instance, to create a load test, simply right-click a functional test and run it as a load test.
Web Services simulation is possible. Tests may be Recorded for later use. The WSDL can be used to produce code stubs. Even from recorded communication, REST standards (WADL) can be created.
How can I run SoapUI?
Since SoapUI is Java-Based, it can run on the Majority of Operating Systems. They have test it on many Windows and Mac versions as well as various Linux variants. SoapUI needs a JRE (Java Runtime Environment) version 1.6 or Later, at least 1 GB of memory, and roughly 100 MB of storage space.
The JRE is already included and is not necessary for your system if you are installing using the installer or the standalone distributions. If not, be sure to install it and change the JAVA HOME environment variable appropriately.
Depending on your requirements and preferences, SoapUI can be used on Windows, Mac, Linux, or Unix platforms.
