I had used soapUI before, with Netbeans, but hadn't ever even looked to see if my preferred IDE IntelliJ IDEA had a plug-in. Today I was getting ready to run some tests and needed soapUI and I didn't want to start Netbeans, so I installed the soapUI plug-in for IDEA. It's great, and very simple to use. Some of you may have used the standalone version of soapUI before, but if your like me you always have your IDE up so why not just get the plug-in. If you haven't ever used soapUI and need a really great tool to send SOAP for testing purposes, it's a great tool and I highly recommend it.
