question about soapui pro

Hello,

If I develop a script/project in soapui pro, would this script work on the free version of the soapUI. Reason I am asking this is because, I will be buying 10+ support licenses so that the developer/QA can write their scripts. But for Load Testing we will be using seperate high end load generation servers. I don't see a reason why I would need a seperate license for these servers. Would be possible/legal for me to develop scripts on my laptop using the support license and then run them from the Load Gen servers which have the free version.

Thanks

Ali

Hi Ali,

thanks for asking;

- If your testcases don't use any of the soapUI Pro TestSteps (datasource and mockresponse), you can run them with the standard soapUI version.
- If your testcases do use them you can still run the command-line runners on other machines, they don't require an installed license. To run the tests from soapUI you will currently need a license as well.

regards,

As a matter of fact.

You can from an unlicensed version (which actually is called Courtesy License) run any test created in soapUI Pro, and I don't see anything illegal wiht it either.

The features are about productivity anyway so from a running perspective it's not that important.
You still can not edit or add test steps.

Hmm,

I wrote the last post in an awful hurry and subsequently the readability was just as awful. To sum my post above and Oles post:


  • One option is running the test in a testrunner. This is legal and might be preferable on a server, it’s actually pretty much why we built the functionality.

  • Another option is running it inside soapUI Pro without a Pro License key. This is tried, works just fine, and is legal.
