Parasoft SOAtest is a testing and analysis tool suite for testing and validating APIs and API-driven applications (e.g., cloud, mobile apps, SOA).[1] Basic testing functionality include functional unit testing, integration testing, regression testing, system testing, security testing, simulation and mocking, and load testing.[2][3]

Supported technologies include Web services, REST, JSON, MQ, JMS, TIBCO, HTTP, XML, EDI, mainframes, and custom message formats.[4]

Parasoft SOAtest introduced Service virtualization via server emulation and stubs in 2002;[5] by 2007, it provided an intelligent stubs platform that emulated the behavior of dependent services that were otherwise difficult to access or configure during development and testing.[6][7] Extended service virtualization functionality is now in Parasoft Virtualize,[8] while SOAtest provides intelligent stubbing.

SOAtest is used by organizations such as Cisco, IBM, HP, Fidelity, Bloomberg, Vanguard, AT&T, IRS, CDC, Tata Consultancy Services, Comcast and Sabre.[9]
