Navigating the API Labyrinth [eBook]

Although APIs provide businesses with modern flexibility to innovate rapidly and deliver new offerings to market, this flexibility has also brought new complexities to software testing, and it can be daunting for testers to understand all of the business rules and flow logic needed to thoroughly test the organization’s APIs.

Combining Parasoft's ecosystem and Curiosity Software's model-based approach to test design, provides customers with a rigorous approach for testing today’s complex chains of API calls, making it easier to navigate the speed and unpredictability of modern software delivery.



Tackling Today's Complex and Integrated API Call Chains

The logical complexity of API testing makes it a perfect candidate for the combination of Model-Based Testing and synthetic test data generation. This eBook sets out such an approach. Part One begins by considering the factors that make API testing so highly complex. Part Two then considers six main challenges associated with testing complex chains of API, before demonstrating in Part Three how rigorous API testing is possible within short iterations with powerful technology.
