ReadyAPI includes samples that show how you can create functional tests against SOAP and REST APIs, virtualize APIs and add authentication to your requests.

The changes you make to sample projects cannot be saved. This means that, if you make some changes, you will have to save the project as a new one. The original file will remain unchanged.

About SoapUI Samples

Project Description
SOAP Sample Project

Contains a large variety of tests that send requests to the included SOAP virtual API.
Some tests are created to test the service behavior in case of incorrect requests, or to show how to create complex scenarios in ReadyAPI.

REST Sample Project

Simulates a user looking at the authorization form and logging in to the attached REST virtual service.

Data-Driven Sample Project

Takes data from a Grid data source and sends multiple requests to the Google Maps API.
Note: Find the link to this project on the Dashboard.

Virtualization Sample Project

Demonstrates how to use ReadyAPI to test both REST and SOAP services in the same project. Contains two test cases working with SOAP and REST virtual APIs.

Authentication Sample Project Contains the test cases that show how you can authenticate to a service in ReadyAPI:
  • Basic Auth – Logs in to the web service by using the Basic authentication.

  • OAuth2 - Browser client – Simulates a browser and authenticates to the Google API. It uses the Implicit Grant method.

  • OAuth2 - Desktop client – Simulates a desktop client and authenticates to the Google API. It uses the Authorization Code Grant method.

  • OAuth2 - Automation – Demonstrates how you can automate OAuth 2.0 token retrieval in your tests.
