While googling for a guide to install soapUI in Ubuntu I found nothing useful. Could it be that installing soapUI in Ubuntu is too easy to describe? It turns out to be really easy, but just for the sake of other people googling this short guide.
soapUI is the leading tool for Web Service Testing. With more than 950 000 downloads, it’s the most used tool for SOA testing in the world.
Start by browsing to the sourceforge site of soapUI. Download the file with extension ‘.sh’.
Download Linux installation file
Open the properties of the downloaded file and select ‘allow executing file as program’ in tab ‘Permissions’.
Double-click the file to run the set-up. Select “Run”.
From now on it’s just a regular installation-wizard.
soapUI is now installed and ready to use.
Let’s try if invoking a web service works. Create a new soapUI project, be sure to select “Create sample requests for all operations”.
Enter ‘GOOG’ as stock symbol and press the green ‘play button’.
