    The SOAtest Server has a REST API that exposes many things including CRUD operations for tests and test suites. A java-based client is also available.

    Also see my previous answer to this:
    Read .tst file using java.

    Thanks @benken_parasoft this gives me some clarification.
    Can we automate these API in SOATest itself or do I have to use other tool?

    Since it is a REST API, you make automate the desired REST API calls however you wish. Whether you do that with cURL or SOAtest or a custom script is up to you. If you use SOAtest then it should be a separate instance that is making the REST API calls to the SOAtest server instance where you wish to construct or manipulate test cases As I mentioned in my other post, there a java-based client is also available in case you want to make REST API calls from your own custom java application.
