Learning by answering questions

Today I came across a question on the MoT Club about learning API Testing.

You can read my answer here:

What I have learned, is there is still a great deal I want to write about API testing, and I really should get on with it.

API Testing topics I want to cover

Some rough topics that I want to cover in my API Testing Series:

  • Sign-posts to existing learning material for REST API testing
  • Sign-posts to good explanations on what APIs and Web services are
  • My own descriptions on the different aspects of testing APIs, including:
    • Testing the API for conventional correctness
      • Error conditions and return codes
      • Headers and body content
    • Using APIs for system testing
    • Mocking
    • Test data
  • Exploration workflow
  • Automation of API Testing
