Testing Apollo 3

by Marques Woodson

Just like any other application, Apollo applications need to be tested. This course teaches you how to properly test your full-stack Apollo application.

What you'll learn

The Apollo GraphQL library is one of the most popular tools around for building a GraphQL-based application. Just like any other application, Apollo applications need to be tested. Building a full-stack application means you need to know how to test the React side built with Apollo Client as well as the server-side built with Apollo Server. This course, Testing Apollo, will walk you through testing both the client and the server. First, you will learn about testing queries and mutations in your react application. Next, you will explore unit testing your resolvers as well as integration and snapshot tests. Finally, you will discover how to use introspection to get the schema definition of a GraphQL database. By the end of this course, you will know how to properly test your Apollo client and server.
