We constantly hear about API and UI testing together, but what does that actually look like in implementation? In a recent SmartBear webinar, “Implementing a Single Framework for API and UI Testing,” we discussed the importance of testing at the API and UI level, how building a single framework for both with help with faster development cycles, and how it all circles back to the goal of DevOps.
SoapUI Open Source was a transformative tool for the API community when it was introduced over 12 years ago - and today we are happy to announce the latest transformation. SoapUI Open Source 5.5 will be available today, which introduces a quicker way to visualize and debug your RESTful and SOAP web services. We’ve also added some new UI touches that align with SmartBear’s, the main backer of SoapUI, new brand rollout.
There are many times in life where “the more the merrier” makes sense, but is the same true in software development? When we talk about writing code and creating features, it’s often thought of as a one-man job -- we picture a single developer working at his or her machine completing tasks alone. However, teams are experimenting with more ways to work collaboratively.
As more and more organizations integrate test automation into their workflows, teams have benefitted from shortened feedback loops and less time between development and delivery. However, while automation has been an asset for effective and efficient testing, many of us are still getting acquainted with the skills required to build out tests that give us maximum value for our time.
It is no accident that people over millennia have been able to effectively unlink from the food chain, build massive structures and civilizations, visit the moon, and connect instantly over a wireless online network.
