Application Programming Interface (API) Testing is a software testing type that checks the functionality, reliability, performance, and security of a programming interface. API Testing mainly concentrates on the business logic layer of the software architecture.
In this course, you will learn about API testing, the various methods and techniques of testing using API in order to advance your career as an API tester.
This software testing type has several advantages such as:
- Access without UI: A key advantage of API testing is having access to the application without a user interface or users to interact with the system. In other words, QA testers can run API tests without needing to experience the software application. This is a great advantage because it provides QA engineers early insight into defects and errors so that developers can resolve the issues before they impact the Graphical User Interface (GUI).
- Test for Core Functionality: Testing the code-level functionality of an application provides an early evaluation of its overall build strength. Core access enables testing in tandem with development, fostering communication and improved collaboration between teams.
- Time Effective: One of the major advantages of APIs is that API testing is far less time-consuming. API testing is known for its speediness in delivering results!
Because of the importance, advantages and simplicity of API Testing, this course is designed to make students gain the necessary skills which will permit them to become API testers.
