Workshop: Get Beyond the Surface: Exploratory Testing for Web Services

Much of exploratory testing tends to concentrate on the client UI. But the same strategies that work well at the UI level can also be applied to the web services and APIs that power your application. Exploratory testing your web services has multiple benefits. By exploring your APIs you can:

  • Find critical bugs earlier in the development cycle,
  • Gain a deeper understanding of how your application or feature works,
  • Have greater confidence in your UI level testing, knowing that the services underneath are solid.

Get beyond the surface of your applications and discover how fun and rewarding API testing can be!

In this hands-on workshop using both paper and laptop exercises, participants will learn::

  • How to ask the right questions about services and API design.
  • Freely available tools for exploring web services.
  • Tips and tricks for finding service-level issues.
