Modern composite applications are aggregating and consuming private, partner, and public APIs at a staggering pace in order to achieve business goals. Ensuring that APIs are delivering the necessary level of security, reliability, and performance is vital for success in today’s API ecosystem.  

As the risks associated with application failure have broader business impacts, the integrity of the APIs you produce and consume is now more important than ever. An API that fails to deliver the expected level of security, reliability, and performance can thus have tremendous business impacts—both to the organization producing it and to those consuming it.

This paper discusses the unique quality risks associated with producing and consuming APIs in today's API economy, and illuminates five key API testing must-haves to tackle these challenges.
