API test automation is critical when testing modern web and mobile apps. SoapUI is one of the biggest names in API testing tools. In this blog series, I will help you become an accomplished API automation engineer. Part 1 is about the installation of SoapUI.
Download and Installation of SoapUI
SoapUI is available on Windows, Mac, or Linux. Available Here
For the purpose of this tutorial, we will be using the free version of SoapUI. Download the version for your operating system and install the application. I will be using SoapUI 5.3.0 for the Mac for this tutorial.
Take the defaults for everything. See the images below if you have any questions on what I used.
Note: The installer will also install HermesJMS. Just take the defaults for this also.
Start up the SoapUI app to make sure the install worked. You have now successfully installed SoapUI.
If you are using the Mac version you may have a hang when you open SoapUI. Use the solution found here to fix that problem.
