Look inside
Ensure your web APIs are consistent and bug-free by implementing an automated testing process.

In Testing Web APIs you will:

  • Design and implement a web API testing strategy
  • Set up a test automation suite
  • Learn contract testing with Pact
  • Facilitate collaborative discussions to test web API designs
  • Perform exploratory tests
  • Experiment safely in a downloadable API sandbox environment

Testing Web APIs teaches you to plan and implement the perfect testing strategy for your web APIs. In it, you’ll explore dozens of different testing activities to help you develop a custom testing regime for your projects. This practical book demystifies abstract strategic concepts by applying them to common API testing scenarios, revealing how these complex ideas work in the real world. You’ll learn to take a risk-driven approach to API testing, and build a strategy that goes beyond the basics of code and requirements coverage. Your whole team will soon be involved in ensuring quality!
