# SoapUI Open Source 5.3.0
#### Released 2016-11-30 ####
### Improvements ###
* Support for OAuth 1 authentication. (SOAPUIOS-194)
* Improved support for OAuth 2. SoapUI now supports two additional grant types: Resource Owner Password Credentials and Client Credentials. (SOAPUIOS-60)
* A new feature by Krzysztof Baranski (krzysbaranski in GitHub): Support for Server Name Indication (SNI) in TLS/SSL requests. (SOAPUIOS-218)
* A new feature by Bouke Nijhuis (BoukeNijhuis in GitHub): The XQuery Match assertion now supports the "Ignore namespace prefix" and "Ignore XML Comments" options. (SOAPUIOS-210)
* A new feature by Kyle Smith (smithk86 in GitHub): The Set Endpoint dialog now displays endpoints in alphabetical order. (SOAPUIOS-212)
Many thanks to Krzysztof, Bouke and Kyle for their efforts!
* The design of some buttons has been updated. (SOAPUIOS-209)
* The SoapUI icon on Mac OS X has been updated. (SOAPUIOS-90)
### Bundled Plugin ###
* The Postman plugin is now included in the SoapUI installation package. You use this plugin to import Postman collections and tests to SoapUI. (SOAPUIOS-208)
### Bug Fixes ###
* TestRunner displayed the "Usage statistics" dialog upon starting. To close this dialog, you had to click any button in it, which was inconvenient for automated test runs. (SOAPUIOS-188)
* The JDBC Request test step converted all SQL column names in responses to upper case. This could cause issues when comparing the response contents with baseline data. (SOAPUIOS-190)
* The SLA assertion did not support property expansions. (SOAPUIOS-195)
* It was impossible to send requests to a secured web service through a proxy server. The simulated requests did not contain the proxy user credentials. (SOAPUIOS-196, SOAPUIOS-199)
* The Groovy Script assertion called by the JDBC Request test step always returned an error "null". (SOAPUIOS-200)
* The context menu of the XML editor had duplicated "Select All" items. (SOAPUIOS-201)
* The Properties test step failed to load the properties, whose names ended with a backslash (\), from a file. (SOAPUIOS-202)
* A NoSuchMethodException exception could occur when creating a project from WSDL. (SOAPUIOS-204)
* A bug fix by Bouke Nijhuis (BoukeNijhuis in GitHub): In certain cases, the Recently Used tab could disappear from the Assertions dialog. (SOAPUIOS-211).
* A bug fix by bearsoftware (GitHub nickname): The Request URL property of the HTTP Request test step did not allow capital letters. (SOAPUIOS-213)
* A bug fix by kekemonster (GitHub nickname): Multiple concurrent requests to a mock service could cause the HTTP 500 error. (SOAPUIOS-215)
Many thanks to Bouke Nijhuis, bearsoftware and kekemonster for contribution!
# SoapUI Open Source 5.2.1
#### Released 2015-10-02 ####
* A new bundled SwaggerHub plugin that helps you easily import Swagger API definitions from SwaggerHub to your project and to export your APIs to SwaggerHub. (SOAPUIOS-152)
For information on SwaggerHub, see
More information on the plugin is available at
* More efficient memory usage. (SOAPUIOS-154)
* A new feature by Stanislaw Wozniak (a GitHub user with the nickname sponte): The test runner has a new setting that commands SoapUI to export test case properties to JUnit-style reports. You can find the new “Export JUnit Results with test properties” check box on the Reports tab of the dialog, in which you specify the test runner's properties before the run. To enable this functionality from the command line, use the new -J command-line argument. (SOAPUIOS-156)
* A bug fix by Marc Paquette (marcpa00 in GitHub): Earlier versions of SoapUI doubled messages sent to the console log from Groovy code. Marc has fixed this. (SOAPUIOS-157)
Many thanks to Stanislaw and Marc for their efforts!
* More bug fixes:
- The UXM AlertSite plugin did not add the "Monitor APIs" item to the product’s menu. (SOAPUIOS-166)

- Running WS-I Compliance for a SOAP service could cause an exception. (SOAPUIOS-158)
# SoapUI Open Source 5.2
#### Released 2015-07-02 ####
### Major New Features ###
* You can use 4 new JSONPath-based assertions:
- JsonPath Count - Calculates the number of element occurrences in a JSON response.
- JsonPath Existence Match - Extracts data from a JSON response and compares it with an expected value.
- JsonPath Match - Checks if a JSON response contains specific node.
- JsonPath RegEx Match - Extracts data from a JSON response and verifies it with a regular expression.
You can find the new assertions in the Add Assertions dialog, in the Property Content assertion group.
* You can create new empty projects (in earlier versions, projects had to be based on WSDL or WADL, or URI).
### Improvements ###
* New look inspired by Ready! API.
* Support for Java 6 has been dropped.
To run SoapUI, now you need to have Java 7 on your computer.
The SoapUI installation package includes Java 7 modules,
so if you use the installer, you do not have to download and install additional files.
* Old-style icons have been replaced with newer icons.
### Bundled Plugins ###
The SoapUI installation package includes the following plugins:
* MQTT plugin - Enables IOT testing of MQTT services.
* Swagger plugin - Enables loading and saving of Swagger interface descriptions.
* AlertSite UXM plugin - Enables distributed monitoring of APIs.
### Bugs Fixed ###
* The JMS Timeout assertion did not work.
* SoapUI failed to find attachments specified by 'xop:Include href'.
* SoapUI failed to load plugins when you run tests with testrunner.bat and the current directory differed from <SoapUI>\bin.
* The "Help > Privacy Policy" menu item did not open any web page. Now it opens
* In the Property Transfer test step editor, it was possible to add two items with the same name to the Transfers list.
* When you resized the "Contain" assertion edit window, the text in that window did not resize appropriately.
* The Overview tab of the REST Interface editor displayed "WSDL Definition" instead of "WADL Definition".
* There was a misprint in the SoapUI Preferences > WSDL Settings screen.

2007-02-09 : 1.7 beta1 release
We are happy to release this intermediate version with several key improvements to SoapUI functionality.
* Support for Mocking of WebServices from within SoapUI. Mock Services can be run either from inside SoapUI
or with one of the IDE/Maven/CommandLine plugins.This opens for a number of usage scenarios, including:
- Rapid Prototyping of WebServices; generate a complete static mock implementation from a WSDL in seconds
and add dynamic functionality using Groovy.
- Client testing/development; create mock implementations of desired operations set up a number of
sample responses (including attachments and custom http-headers) so clients can be developed/tested without
access to the "live" services. Responses can be cycled, randomized or selected with XPath expression from
incoming request
- Test-Driven Development; Create SoapUI TestSuites/TestCases against MockServices before/during the actual
services have been/are being implemented
* New/Improved Tool Integrations for JBossWS "wsimport" and Oracle wsa
* Improved WSDL-inspector shows tree/outline view over complete contract with "drill-down" functionality
* SSL-inspection shows peer certifacte information for responses received using https
* Generate TestSuite action to generate a complete TestSuite for all operation in an interface
* Improved property-expansion allows XPath expression directly in property-expansion syntax
* New Not-SOAP-Fault assertion
* Possibility to expand received MTOM attachments for schema compliance
* Possibility to override attachment Content-IDs
* Possibility to add default schemas for validation
* Possibility to run WS-I validations using commandline tools
* Possibility to set log-tabs history
* Many more minor improvements and bug-fixes
As always, please make backups of your project files before testing and let us know if you have any issues!
2006-11-12 : 1.6 final release
We are extremely happy to finally release SoapUI 1.6 final which introduces a large number of
fixes and many minor improvements since the beta2 release, including;
* Added exclusion list to proxy settings (comma-seperated)
* Added 2 context properties available when load-testing:
- ThreadIndex : the index of the created thread... this value will never change for a given TestCase during its run time..
New threads will simply get an incremented index... the mod of this value could for example be used as an index into a data-file
(to handle changes in number of threads)
- RunCount: tells how many times the TestCase has been run by its thread (not in total) during the current LoadTest
* Added initial support for unzipping gzipped response messages, ie messages with a Content-Type or Content-Encoding ending with "gzip".
Thanks to Diego Banda.
* Added request-level property to inline attachment content in response editor (as in SoapUI 1.5)
* Improved saving of projects to not corrupt files on out-of-memory (saving now first saves to an in-memory buffer
which is written to file if no errors occur..)
* Fixed validation of derived types in xml-editors
* Fixed automatic adding of TestStep Status assertion to newly created loadtests,
* Added option to ignore case in Contains/NotContains assertions
* Improved support for automatic validation by adding an option to not send invalid requests
* Added support for automatic validation of request/response messages in editors
thanks to Michael Vorburger! ("Preferences / UI Settings / Validate Request / Response")
* Added support for generating rpc-parts for attachments ("Preferences / WSDL Settings / Attachment Parts")
* Added [Tools] button to all Tools dialogs which opens "Preferences / Integrated Tools" for setting tool paths
* General dialog improvements; Escape closes and F1 shows online help if available
* Fixed validation of SOAP mustUnderstand/encodingStyle attributes in entire messages
* Added possibility to edit response message and revalidate with Alt-V (including assertions)
* Added possibility for custom background image in desktop. Just place a soapui-background.gif/jpg/png in the
SoapUI bin directory (at last :-), Thanks to Roger Sundberg
* Added option to open TestCase editor when adding requests to a TestCase
* Updated to commons-ssl-0.3.0.jar
* Fixed caching of attachments to now be saved in the soapui-project file (compressed)... this makes
portability of soapui-projects with attachments much simpler... The attachment-folder setting has been
* Fixed property-expansion when running xpath-assertions and property-transfers from within their
* Fixes password-input fields to be masked

only with doc/literal services in a J2EE environment and running under WinXP).
Please have patience and notify me any problems together with WSDL's, messages,
project-files, etc. so these can be fixed as soon as possible. Thanks!
Get started by running one of the SoapUI scripts in the bin folder..
Good Luck and happy soaping!
