Building API Test Designs with Model-Based Testing

Presented by

Mark Asbury

About this talk

Broken APIs cause bad user experiences that will hurt your company’s brand. While testing an API as exhaustively as possible is often the most effective way to know if each component is behaving the way it should, this is still dependent on the extent of the test coverage provided. API Testing is missing key metrics to help optimize test plans. Shackled by slow incomplete manual test designs, testers have much difficulty today in prioritizing what needs to be tested. Meanwhile developers are unable to shorten test runs and fail fast for more immediate feedback. So how do we compliment API Testing to with the power of Model-based Testing (MBT) for maximum testing coverage and efficiency by optimizing our test design? Join Continuous Testing expert Mark Asbury as he dives into a fully integrated end-to-end API testing framework/pipeline to rapidly test a live webservice. You'll Learn: Learn how to leverage the power of model-based test design for validating requirements for developing APIs. Use model-based testing to support common API testing strategies. Automate the creation and maintenance of API test automation scripts using the open source automation framework Taurus. How to quickly respond to changing requirements and efficiently update test cases and automation scripts. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session

New approaches like DevOps or the adoption of a Digital Transformation strategy are meant to make life easier and simpler to creating quality applications faster with better quality and at lower costs, but do they? Maybe. They’ll help put structure in place for team collaboration or deliver an experience your customers won’t forget, but development teams still face the constraints of development through deployment. From development, testing and the management of releases, organizations and their customers have had to deal with ineffective service delivery, compounded by the silos of development, system administration, and operations. CA solutions for DevOps and Continuous Delivery can help you eliminate constraints across the software delivery lifecycle (SDLC), allow developers, testers and performance teams to work in parallel for faster delivery and more reliable outcomes, all the way through deployment and feedback from IT Operations.
