Karate Fundamentals

by James Willett

Karate is an open-source platform combining API automation, performance testing, mocks and UI automation into a single unified framework. This course will teach you the fundamentals of Karate by building an automated testing framework from scratch.

What you'll learn

Implementing both automation and performance testing of APIs used to require different frameworks, but what if there was a framework that could handle both of these testing types (and much more)?

In this course, Karate Fundamentals, you’ll learn to utilize the Karate open-source unified test automation platform to combine Automation and Performance Testing of APIs into a single testing framework.

First, you’ll explore the Karate test platform and get an idea of the different types of test automation that are possible.

After that, you’ll build an entire API automation and performance testing framework from scratch against a real E-Commerce API.

Finally, you’ll learn how to set up and configure a CI/CD pipeline in Jenkins to run the suite of automated tests that you have created.

When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of a test automation engineer needed to implement automated and performance testing of APIs.
