SmartBear Partners with Apiary to Deliver API Blueprint Plug-In

SmartBear Software, the choice of more than two million software professionals for building and delivering the world’s best applications, released a new plug-in for SoapUI Pro that provides support for Apiary’s API Blueprint service descriptions within the tool.

Apiary, designers of API Blueprint and the Apiary API Design toolchain, is committed to providing API providers with all the tools necessary to build beautiful APIs. The goal is to enable parallel API development through better collaboration and documentation rather than rely on the traditional models used by most teams today. SmartBear, makers of SoapUI Pro, shares the same goal by providing developers and testers common tooling to test mock services and APIs. The marriage of these technologies provides even more power for teams to collaborate and communicate while building their APIs.

API service descriptions have become vital to organizations that collaborate across teams and with partners during the design phase of an API. Having the ability to easily understand and iterate over the initial design means API providers can release more stable APIs that better meet the needs of their consumers. Likewise, consumers benefit from having human-readable API descriptions because they can more easily integrate with the API.

“SoapUI has a long history and powerful feature-set targeted at API testing and virtualization, and it's an ideal match to our industry-leading API Design toolchain,” said Jakub Nesetril, Founder and CEO of Apiary. “SoapUI also supports several other older formats like WSDL and WADL, and the resulting inter-operability now eases the transition to modern collaborative design approach using API Blueprint. We are excited about the opportunities for API developers.”

SoapUI Pro’s new plug-in architecture makes extending the tool fast and easy. The simplified plug-in framework uses annotation-based extension points instead of XML configuration files and provides automatic installation of any third-party dependencies. SoapUI Pro offers a plug-in browser so SoapUI Pro users are able to find and install plug-ins quickly and easily. The new API Blueprint plug-in was released on August 6, 2014 and is available for all SoapUI Pro users through this browser.

“API Blueprint is a key player in the API specification and documentation domain and we're extremely excited to open SoapUI Pro to its users and make API testing and virtualization a natural ingredient of their API development and integration processes,” said Ole Lensmar, CTO of SmartBear.

Recently awarded the top honor of Dr. Dobb’s Jolt Award in the Best Testing Tools category, SoapUI Pro 5.1 is immediately available for download at http://www.smartbear.com/SoapUI Pro.
