In this interconnected age, API testing is one of-if not the most important form of testing. Testing APIs is quicker than functional GUI testing, ensures core functionality and is easily integrated with GUI testing. As with any endeavor, there are challenges that will arise. Testing APIs is not an exception. Is there a way that software companies can be prepared for when these obstacles occur? Yes, there is. Our expert API engineers have put together a detailed guide with tips to help companies prevent and overcome API testing challenges.
APIs, or Application Program Interfaces, have become an integral way of connecting people, their devices, and the information they need. They allow different applications to interact with one another and transfer data back and forth—they’re the main vein for app integrations and single sign-on functionality, and are essential to the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT).
There are plenty of benefits and advantages to API testing, but the high-level ones that matter most to engineering teams and the larger business are improved test cycle coverage, better Agile processes between dev and QA teams, huge time savings, and the ability to test the application in any core language.
As our society becomes more interconnected, testing APIs is critical. Because of this, many software companies are considering or are already implementing API testing into their QA process. Many are also automating their API testing. Since your brand's reputation is at stake, it is imperative that any new endeavor be thoroughly researched. In order to assist you in this, our expert API engineers at QASource have shared and answered the top 3 questions about API testing.

QASource recently presented the webinar, "The Future is API Testing - Trends and How to Propel Your Testing." We presented this webinar twice due to its popularity.
In this webinar, QASource CEO Rajeev Rai discussed API testing's central role in the future of QA, and the necessity and benefits of testing APIs. In the webinar, Rajeev also walked the audience through detailed video demonstrations on how to perform API testing.
Organizations are increasingly using application programming interfaces (APIs) to connect their products to the outside world. Whenever you sign up for a new service and it pulls your information from Google or Facebook, or you launch a data-consuming app on your smartphone, there’s an API at work. APIs are essential for creating a simple, streamlined, and increasingly connected experience for customers and companies are finally beginning to realize their value - and to direct more resources toward their development and maintenance.
QASource recently presented the webinar "Accelerate Your Automation With API Testing." In this webinar, QASource CEO Rajeev Rai discussed API testing's rise in popularity, and the necessity and benefits of testing APIs. The webinar also offered tips on how to perform API testing and best practices.
We presented this webinar twice in September due to its popularity. During both live presentations, attendees were given the opportunity to ask questions, but we were unable to get to them all. Here, our expert API engineers answered them.
The phrase ’Internet of Things’, typically abbreviated as IoT, has been bouncing around in the tech industry for years. But there are still plenty of consumers—and even product company leaders—puzzling at its meaning. What is it? How does it impact the plain old “Internet” that I’ve grown to know and love? How does it affect my product, my business, and how my teams run tests?
APIs, or application program interfaces, are responsible for connecting everything and everyone to each other: Think using Facebook to sign into a music player app. Though APIs are integral to our interconnected way of life, they are not always tested, or tested thoroughly.
