Today's automation engineer needs to burrow deeper underneath the GUI to the API level. Because of this, HP has released a new version of its test tool, called Unified Functional Testing (UFT), and it includes a new test type called API testing (formerly known as Service Test). In this course, Quick Guide to API Testing with HP's Unified Functional Testing, you'll get a "hands-on" look at some of the core concepts you need to know. You'll start with an overview of Web and REST services and how to easily create tests and validate responses. Next, you'll cover most of the UFT API helper activities that allow you to enhance your API tests for even more functionality. You'll also get to see creating custom UFT API code using C#, as well as integrating GUI and API testing into one IDE. By the end of this course, you should have a solid understanding of getting running with UFT API and API concepts in general.
