API testing is critical for identifying defects at multiple layers of your application and ensuring a seamless customer experience. By building meaningful API tests, you unlock the power of an effective testing strategy, ensuring that your applications work the same today as they did yesterday. As opposed to UI testing, which is hard to effectively scale, API testing can precisely pinpoint the root cause of defects, is easy to automate, and is resistant to application change, making it more effective.
In this webinar, we will walk you through the API testing fundamentals and show you how to build a testing strategy to identify defects at multiple layers of your application. You will learn:
- API testing basics: when and why to perform API testing
The different types of API tests (e.g. service contract, scenario, performance, etc.) and where/why you might use them
- How to leverage these different types of tests to build and scale an effective testing strategy
- How to automatically manage the impact of change in your application and ensure consistency
- How to string these types of tests together to form an omni-channel test to validate the overall customer experience
