F14-11/6: Tips for Painless API Testing

Track/s: Automation

APIs can often be a painful part of the testing process, from understanding what the API does to making sure you can work around your application’s dependencies on internal and third-party APIs. Add the complexities of testing and monitoring your API’s performance and you can end up with a real headache. But it doesn’t have to hurt!

In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Use your API’s service description to build your test skeleton and ensure adequate test coverage
  • Use API mocking to test an API while it’s still in development
  • Use service virtualization to overcome dependencies on APIs you might not have easy access to
  • Use SLA assertions to test performance and create production monitors from your tests
