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 the API’s performance and you could end up with a real headache. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Temil teaches 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 and to use SLA assertions to test performance and create production monitors from your tests.
Temil is a Sales Engineer for SmartBear’s SoapUI, the most used API testing tool in the world with seven million downloads. Working with SmartBear’s automated QA and testing solutions, Temil’s passion for software began in his home country, the Dominican Republic, where he worked for an outsourcing company providing technical software solutions to Verizon Business.
