Description

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.

Getting Started with UFT API
Hi, I'm Joe Colantonio, and welcome to my Pluralsight course, a Quick Guide to API Testing with HP's Unified Functional Testing. This course covers all the major functionality in the Unified Functional Testing 12. 5 and above, using the UFT API Test Type to help you quickly create API tests for your application.

Testing Web and REST and Web Services
Hi, I'm Joe Colantonio, and welcome back to my Pluralsight course on API testing with HP's Unified Functional Testing. In this module, we're going to go over testing Web and REST Services.

Enhancing Tests
Hey, I'm Joe Colantonio, and welcome back to my Pluralsight course on API testing with HP's Unified Functional Testing. So far we've gone over the basics on UFT API testing using Web and REST Services. In this module, I want to go over what I call the UFT helper activities, and how they can help to enhance the existing Web and REST tests we've created to obtain even more functionality and reuse of our UFT API test.

Testing Beyond REST and Web Services
Hi, I'm Joe Colantonio, and welcome back to my API Testing with HP's Unified Functional Testing. In this module, we're going to cover Testing Beyond REST and Web Services. Up until this point, we've only looked at testing REST and Web Services, along with some helper activities. In this module, we take a look at some other technologies that we can test headlessly using UFT API, like XML testing, database testing, testing JMS, Java, and more.

Custom Code
Hi, I'm Joe Colantonio, and welcome back to my Pluralsight course on API Testing with HP's Unified Functional Testing. In this module, we are going to take a look at what I think is one of the coolest features in UFT API. And that is the ability to write Custom code functionality using C Sharp.

Unified Functional Testing
Hi, I'm Joe Colantonio, and welcome back to my Pluralsight course on API Testing with HP's Unified Functional Testing. In this module, we arrive at one of the key new features of the integrated GUI and API testing into one IDE. And that is the true meaning of the name, Unified Functional Testing, where you're able to create test flows that interact with both GUI and API layer tests within one test flow.
