Fundamentals of SoapUI

Fundamentals of SoapUI is a tool-based course that gives you the basic skills to do web services testing and to make an effective integrations test.

Learning objectives

You will gain basic knowledge of how to ensure quality and use SoapUI when working with SOA and web service projects. You will become better at:

  • Working with both SOAP and REST in SoapUI
  • Understanding how to build and work with services
  • Co-operating with web service developers
  • Building effective, structured tests
  • Maintaining a self-developed API client
  • Understanding basic SCHEMA, XML, JSON, WSDL, WADL, SOAP, and REST
  • Understanding where and how you can use SoapUI in your organisation

You’ll also get lots of tips and tricks you can use when you continue working with SoapUI at home.

Target audience

This course is for everyone in testing and development teams who wants to be involved in designing, developing, and testing services, as well as supporting a structured and automated approach with the help of SoapUI. Prior knowledge of similar tools is not expected, but basic knowledge of web services will be an advantage, but not a requirement.

Course format

The course runs for two days, during which participants will learn to operate and work with SoapUI through examples and practical exercises. The course is based on active participant involvement and many hands-on exercises to ensure you can immediately apply the knowledge you gained after the end of the course.
