Accelerating OpenAPI Design & Development with Next-Level Mocking 

Getting Started with Virtual APIs eBook

As a developer or tester of APIs, mocking (sometimes called stubbing) is a useful practice. It allows you to mimic a response from a web service or API. However, when you try to scale those responses, and generate rich, dynamic test data, mocking becomes unwieldy. The time it takes to build mocks in order to mimic hundreds of responses slows down your development process.

So how do you take your mocking to the next-level? A service virtualization tool allows you to import an OpenAPI (or Swagger, WSDL, etc.) definition and record live traffic, or manually virtualize your RESTful or SOAP service to create a "living" web service in just minutes.
