In this webinar, join technical API experts for a walkthrough of these new features and other exciting updates from the API team at SmartBear.
Strictly speaking, SOAP and REST aren't directly comparable: REST is an architectural style, and SOAP is a specific protocol defined by a standard. A REST-styled project might, in principle, rely on SOAP. However, architects often abbreviate a typical choice in these terms: SOAP involves
In order to fully understand how your target audience would use your API, you have to dogfood it yourself and then, once it’s out in the wild, you need to monitor how it’s being used. For both API testing requirements, let’s use the common REST API example of a simple contact
As the API industry grows and matures, there is more opportunity than ever to capitalize on latest innovative technologies to deliver exceptional APIs
Representational state transfer or “REST” is the software architectural style designed for distributed systems and, particularly, the World Wide Web. REST is not a protocol or standard. REST architecture is simply following certain guidelines for how a well-designed Web app behaves, in a
The pressure to deliver better APIs faster and cheaper is rising. View three real-world examples of API Virtualization.
The machine-to-machine communications APIs enable are so important that the literature and contention around REST have multiplied in the following years. Several principles of successful REST APIs have emerged, though; a dozen of the most important follow.
Using virtual APIs enables frequent and comprehensive testing even while an API is still in the midst of being developed. This eBook will give you the resources you need to add API virtualization into your software delivery process.
Front-end apps and integrations depend on APIs to work properly, but designers and testers often have to wait until developers come up with an initial implementation of the APIs just to start building mock-ups and test sets. Software teams shouldn't have to wait for an alpha release for
