EFFICIENT TEST AUTOMATION
Today, APIs have become a standard for app to app communication. API testing is an integral part of the testing process. It’s usually done as part of integration testing. This is to determine if they meet expectations for functionality and reliability.
Experts recommend testers to shift more of their testing efforts to the API level. It is to achieve the ultimate goal of 80% of functional test automation at the API level. API testing a good fit for Continuous Testing, Agile, and DevOps for many reasons.
- API tests are less brittle and easier to maintain than traditional UI tests.
- You can implement these tests and execute earlier in each sprint than UI tests.
- Testing API can often verify detailed “under-the-hood” functionality that lies beyond the scope of UI tests.
- Tests are much faster to execute and are thus more suitable for checking whether each new build impacts the existing user experience.
