API Testing Tools

Testing is part of trust. Just like, trust in a person is built with trials and tests. The same goes for computer software. Just as we have development teams. we have testing teams who use these API testing tools to qualify software as good and customer efficient before any user can use it. Being trained to be a software developer, you should also make a habit of testing your software. It is a trait of a good software developer. Diving deep into this topic and discussing these tools, to help you understand the working of such tools and how you can use them, we will be giving talking about them.

Top 30+ Rest Assured Interview Questions and Answers (2024) MEDIUM
This article discusses the most asked Rest Assured Interview Questions in 2024 in detail. It covers a bunch of easy, medium, and hard questions that may assist in Interviews.

Postman

When we start with API testing tools, the first and the most common tool that is talked about among developers is Postman. If you have worked with APIs or you have studied about it, you must have come across this term. So Let's become the mailbox for a postman to mail its knowledge letter.

Ready API

Let's start with the new API Testing Tool. It is quite easy to use that is designed to ease your testing workflow in a pipeline fashion. There are many features in relation to the testing and it provides a wide variety of software integrations for JMS, JDBC, SOAP, REST APIs testing, and many more. There are functional tests, security tests, and performance tests as part of testing in READY API. These will also include the test results and scripting. There are many features to discuss in deep in Ready API.

ACCELQ

When we come across ACCELQ, we become codeless. It is the most powerful software used for testing your API, especially in the case when you don't want to code. We use ACCELQ when we want to achieve the codeless automation of our tests and in order to speed up continuous testing. It is fast yet reliable.

Katalon Studio

As a developer, you will need to work on various APIs, from their development to testing and then releasing them to production. Here, for one such procedure, we would be discussing Katalon Studio. Katalon is testing software that is built on top of open-source frameworks such as Selenium and Appium. You can test any type of application such as web, API, Mobile, or desktop.

JMeter

JMeter is owned by Apache, a project made to use as a load-testing tool. The main purpose of JMeter is to analyze and measure the performance of the software. It can be used for a variety of services that are mainly focused on web applications. JMeter is open-source and free to use. It is entirely based on Java programming language. It has a GUI feature as well which uses a Swing Graphical API. Much more awaits for you to learn and grow your knowledge so stay tuned.
