    soapUI 2.5 with REST support is a winner. As far as I know soapUI 2.5 is the first test tool with REST test construction capability. The software development community has needed this for a while. SOAP is doing well, but REST is hugely more popular among developers. PushToTest will upgrade TestMaker to fully support soapUI 2.5. TestMaker repurposes soapUI tests as functional tests, load and performance tests, and business service production monitors. Additionally, we are already updating our soapUI Training Course to include REST training. Details are at http://soapui.pushtotest.com. Lastly, it is very nice to see WADL support. The Web Application Description Language (WADL) is to REST what WSDL is to SOAP. WADL is an XML-based definition of the REST interface to an application or service. I first heard about WADL back in 2005. Marc Hadley at Sun wrote a blog entry at http://weblogs.java.net/blog/mhadley/archive/2005/05/introducing_wad.html. Since then Marc's efforts seem to have paid off. When building a Web application in NetBeans 6 the new app wizard creates a WADL definition for you automatically. -Frank Cohen http://www.pushtotest.com
  4. I'm very happy to see a REST testing tool with integrated WADL support. Thanks very much!
