Languages like Ruby and Python make building things, particularly APIs, incredibly simple. This simplicity enables us to deliver APIs rapidly, but how can you ensure that this increased output doesn't translate to technical sloppiness? After all, simplici
A complete guide to quality assurance testing for REST and SOAP APIs and webservices.
Approaching test automation on products that were not designed to be testable can be something between "a challenge" and impossible. When I find I'm in that situation, usually I'll try to plant the idea with developers; "hey, it might be cool to write a unit test or two for
API testing is an inherently technical task. Instead of spinning up a new browser tab, typing into a slick user interface and clicking buttons, I reach for a tool and think carefully about data and endpoint paths. When we test an API, we deal with the stuff under the covers -- JSON, XML, REST, and
Working with a microservices API gateway can greatly reduce coding efforts, make your applications far more efficient, and decrease errors all at that same time. An advantage of using microservices is that you don’t have to interact with a huge code base. Microservices are small and flexible
It might be nice to know how to create a microservice in the first place and that’s the purpose of this article. In this case, the article shows how to create the simplest possible microservice so that you can begin to make sense of some of the resources you find online.
These are exciting times, and microservices are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the connected world. Join us to see how you can start testing out these concepts in your own enterprise today.
Learn how SmartBear’s tools can dramatically improve your testing process by automating semantics and simulating bad behavior from your APIs.
SmartBear product team members Denis Goodwin (monitoring guru) and Paul Bruce (load engineer) show how you can prove your API is meeting goal and delivering a great experience for your end-user.
