In today's world, software development companies are pressured to deliver a product faster than ever before. This means a shorter Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) must be achieved, and thus the testing process must keep up the pace. In this course, Getting Started with Web API Test Automation in Java, you will learn how to deliver faster yet high-standard quality assurance to a Web API. First, you will get an overview of the fundamental theory that surrounds Web APIs including how a Web API works and the necessary basic HTTP concepts that you need to get started. Next, you will learn about and get hands-on practice with various tools that can help you to automate tests and you will understand their strengths and weaknesses. Finally, you will write your own small testing framework in Java to achieve test automation. By the end of this course, you will have learned how to approach Web API test automation, decide what solutions are appropriate to your specific needs and the practical coding skills to achieve faster testing. All of this will serve you as a foundation to further develop a fully automated approach to testing within the SDLC.
Course Overview [Autogenerated] Hi, everyone. My name is Andres Dornan's Unwelcome to my Pluralsight course. Getting started with web API test automation in Java. I'm a test automation engineer, and I take pride in delivering quality assurance to software products. This automation is becoming the new norm across all IDE organizations that deliver software. And a fast and efficient delivery also means fast and efficient testing. This course is for quality assurance professionals involved in web API testing and will cover a range of important topics. First, you will get an overview off the fundamental theory that surrounds web APIs, including how web API works on the basics off. HTTP. Next, you will get hands on practice with various tools that can help you automate tests, and you will also understand some off their strengths and weaknesses. But most importantly, you will learn how to get started with creating your own small testing framework in Java to achieve test automation by using a popular library called Apache HTTP Client. By the end of this course, you'll have gained an overview What solutions are available as well as the practical coding skills to achieve faster testing. All of this will serve you as a foundation to further develop a fully automated approach to testing within the software development lifecycle Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with programming in Java. You should also know how to use at least one integrated development environment or an ID such as eclipse or intelligent. I hope you'll join me on this journey with the course getting started with web API Test automation in Java at Pluralsight
