Model-Based Testing: Navigating the API Labyrinth

APIs are the lifeblood of modern software, enabling organisations to reach across technologies and users faster than ever before. However, the flexibility to incorporate new building blocks into systems creates massive complexity in testing. Modern testing must match the agility of development, executing API tests that hit a vast number of logical combinations in ever-shorter iterations. This eBook sets out an integrated methodology for achieving exactly this. The model-based approach links optimised tests, data and environments to flowchart models that are quick-to-build and easy-to-maintain. As complex APIs change, parallel QA teams can quickly update the central models, auto-generating a set of up-to-date API for every combination
