The world is moving towards web services as a model for providing software solutions with various interfaces defined for consumers. These services must be well tested for all scenarios as usage may grow continuously based on quality and performance.
Test the well-established services by re-using the REST API and SOAP APIs with SimplifyQA Interface Tester during its evolution and also for measuring response time sutainance with usage increasing.
In most software solutions, the UI layer takes time to evolve and stabilize, so SimplifyQA Interface Testing can be used to thoroughly test the microservices.
Prior to GUI testing, API testing can be performed in an application. GUI stability requires time and is the most susceptible to change. The core functionalities of the application can be tested to identify small bugs and assess the build's health.
SimplifyQA Interface Testing supports data exchange in XML and JSON formats, enabling the testing of all REST APIs and SOAP APIs.
The majority of API / Web Services have well-defined interface specifications, enabling the creation of automated tests with extensive coverage.
Faster detection and resolution of core functional issues, with only UI issues expected during testing. This enables software development teams to release product versions more quickly.
The failure point during API testing can be quickly identified and corrected. Clearly, a well-tested API improves MTTR stats, making it a very useful metric for DevOps implementation.
When testing APIs, no UI interface is required, resulting in a significant reduction in test execution time. This expedites the functional testing coverage.
