Join API Implementation Strategist Andrew Fullen of Sogeti and API Testing Advocate Paul Bruce as they discuss how to overcome challenges in integration between API tools, back-end systems, and the teams that deliver them.
API development practices are evolving at a more rapid pace than ever before in its short history. With the emergence of DevOps, Agile methodologies, and Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery, it can be challenging to determine which approach best suits your API development process. This eBook
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
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
In the SmartBear REST API tutorial you will learn what exactly are RESTful Web Services and what are its best (and worst) use cases, the difference between a REST API and a SOAP API, and how to test a REST API for not only usage, but use cases.Since this is your very own REST
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.
Functional testing is great for finding some types of problems. But using that technique alone is a bit like volunteering to put blinders on to other risks.
Test the functionality of your REST and SOAP APIs faster, while improving quality and security.
