API & Micro-services Testing And Test Automation
“Lately, APIs and Micro-services became the backbone of programming. API testing is one of the most challenging parts of the whole chain of software testing. API testing involves bypassing a user interface and communicating directly with an application by making calls to its APIs.
As in an application, writing APIs to communicate with a database or with another module has become a common practice now and that is why as a tester you must test the APIs for maximum test coverage. As a part of integration testing, API automation would help to accelerate the testing and increase efficiency.
While testing APIs, a tester should focus on using software to make API calls in order to receive an output before observing and logging the system’s response. There are many tools for API automation which are quite popular.
In this course, you would understand API, API testing as well as automation tools.”
