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
Have you looked at the cost of service virtualization lately? Unlike machine-level virtualization, simulating a full technology stack can be massive overkill for teams that build modern apps.
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
While API performance is crucial for success, what we often see during the API delivery lifecycle is that in an absence of additional resources during development, performance problems are often pushed aside until the very end of a project. The goal of these eBook is to provide practical advice
Remove dependencies on other teams or 3rd parties by virtualizing (or mocking) APIs and web services that are out of your control.
