API Mocking and Service Virtualization Explained image
Talk Description
Too much pressure on the testing team and not enough time to test? Are testers being blocked by other teams not delivering APIs on time, leaving them unable to test? Hard to reproduce production bugs resulting in frustration and time loss? Is creating test data complex and taking time, slowing the testing team down?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might need stubbing and service virtualization.


Stubbing and service virtualization are great tools to understand and use for testing. You can also think of them as simulators for APIs. In this Masterclass, we will explore the terminology involved with stubbing and service virtualization. We’ll then walk through a simplified example of how a service virtualization tool can work with a testing framework. We’ll also explore a few problems testers can face when using these testing techniques.
What you’ll learn

By the end of this masterclass, you'll be able to:

  • Describe what service virtualization is
  • List the different ways of creating virtual services
  • State the benefits of testing in isolation with service virtualization
