The Parasoft SOAtest 9.9 upgrade means side-by-side installation with SOAtest 9.7

We have used SOAtest since last July. We were told we needed to upgrade SOAtest 9.7 to 9.9. After the installation, we found that it is not really the upgrade. It is called side-by-side installation. SOAtest 9.9 and SOAtest 9.7 are installed together in my laptop.

Here are 2 main issues after the “upgrade”:

  • We need to reconfigure everything in Parasoft->Preferences.

  • If we create new tests in SOAtest 9.9, we can’t use SOAtest 9.7 to expand the test scenarios in the individual .tst file. It is not backward compatible.

Why let users reconfigure the settings in SOAtest after the upgrade? It is not user-friendly.
