How to test and deliver resilient, functional and secure APIs
Increasingly, companies are using APIs to make their services available to their customers and building software on micro-services principles. As the amount of our software leveraging APIs increases, so do our needs for testing them. As pressure mounts to deliver better APIs faster and cheaper, QualiTest and SmartBear review how we test to ensure teams continue to build resilient, functional and secure APIs every day. Daniel Geater of QualiTest Group and Harsh Upreti of SmartBear hosted this webinar on April 6 at 4pm BST / 11am EDT.
This webinar addressed the following:
- How API testing has changed
- The need to explore more than just functional testing of APIs for performance and security
- The difference between API virtualization and service virtualization
- Decoupling from 3rd party systems using virtual APIs
- Shifting API testing left for CI and DevOps models
