In the growing competitive business world of today, businesses understand the need for optimum quality applications for more traffic. With the increasing adoption of modern architecture, validating business applications becomes imperative for every business. By testing the application interfaces, API testing helps in enhancing the performance, functionality, efficiency, reliability, and security of the applications.
The rise in the number of interconnected platforms and cloud applications makes API testing even more important. API testing ensures that all the APIs work seamlessly across various devices and operating systems. By uncovering the potential defects and ensuring effective code verification, API testing helps in enhancing the overall user experience of the customers.
API testing offers the following benefits to the businesses:
API testing helps in improving the functionality of business applications.
The early detection of performance issues, integration issues, and other potential vulnerabilities save both time and money.
API testing offers optimum protection to applications against harmful codes and other malware.
API testing enables easy expansion of business applications.
The testing helps in enhancing the overall quality of software and ensures a better user experience.
At QAble, we follow a unique methodology for the effective API testing of your application. Our API testing process includes the following steps that are outlined below.
We begin the API testing process by understanding the purpose of API. By understanding the requirement of API testing and the workflow of the client’s application, we lay a strong foundation for optimum outcomes.
An API testing project may consist of a large number of APIs for testing. We organize the API endpoints and prioritize them based on various aspects in order to ensure efficient test management.
While there are plenty of automation suites available in the market, we choose the most suitable one. We consider all the important criteria and accordingly choose the most suitable automation suite for your application.
We carefully choose the right dataset for your testing project. Weighing the pros and cons of the different verification methods, we choose the best fit for your project.
We develop both positive as well as negative tests to ensure optimum performance of all the APIs. Based on the input and output data, we develop the best tests.
We design the best strategies for optimum execution of the tests. With the establishment of the right strategy, test execution becomes easy.
We maintain all the test scripts of your projects and make the necessary changes when required. We ensure regular script maintenance for enhancing the scope and coverage of the application.
We have proficiency in conducting successful unit testing. Our unit testing helps in examining the functionality of all the individual APIs of our client’s application.
We help in performing the end-to-end testing of the functionality of the API layer. We ensure all the APIs work as expected.
We perform a variety of security tests, including encryption, authentication, penetration testing, and more. We offer optimum protection to the application against all the potential external threats and attacks.
We ensure that the application performs optimally under various levels of load. We monitor the performance of the application in normal as well as peak conditions.
Runtime testing is associated with the actual running of the APIs. We focus on monitoring resource leaks, execution errors, and detect potential errors.
We conduct end-to-end UI testing for the entire system. We test the user interface for all the APIs of the application.
