Is API Testing Worth it?

Well, if you want to reduce risk, increase coverage, and reduce defect leakage in your software the answer is a definitive and resounding YES! Over the past couple of decades, testers have largely been testing at the user interface (UI) level. The problem with this approach is the UI is constantly changing and must be stable before any testing can begin. If you have been following software development, you know that the trend is to release more quickly – waiting for a UI to be stable to be tested does not break any speed records, in fact this slows down the whole software engineering process. What if you could test earlier in the software engineering lifecycle with a stable interface? This would mean that you: •Test earlier in the lifecycle
•Identify and remediate defects earlier
•Reduce testing time and cost
•Increase test coverage 


If these benefits sound too good to be true check out our most recent research on API testing that shows how you can achieve better software quality, a more rap…
