Huge xml file test with SOAPUI



I want to test a huge file (approx. 500mb  xml file) by sending it with SOAPUI to a REST API.


Can we upload a file in SOAPUI? If yes then how can we upload or test it? If I try to paste this file, then it is hangs up and won’t paste there after some time.

If there any mechanism to test with huge xml files?


Thx in Advance.

      hi Rao,


      No it is not attachment, I have to send Content type: application/xml; charset=UTF-8 only. Not as an attachment.

      So I am looking for option to check if we can save our xml there or import and test it in raw form? because I cannot paste that xml in the editor.

      Does it has any provision to import the file?

        khajaansar1, as far as I know, SoapUI only supports sending raw data as HTTP attachments.


        As of now I would try to employ a Groovy script test step and send the data with your own code or consider executing an external program like curl.


        It would be a helpful feature to allow SoapUI to send data without holding them within memory. SoapUI could only hold a path to the file and read the data just to send the content to a target service.
