In this program, participants learn RestAssured & Karate and their use cases. Assuming little knowledge on participants-side, program starts with basics of Http and Api. It covers lot of ground for Junit as well. RestAssured & Karate are free and open source rest api client library for java. With extensive configuration, auth support, serilaization, and first-class features, they allow to rapidly create and execute automated rest api testing when combined with Junit, very capable unit testing library. Participants learn how to use RestAssured & Karate to deal with rest api requests and responses for various usecases including authentition. Program allows participants to use RestAssured with Junit & Karate to test any rest api with data driven testing. Sometimes, BDD is preferred for Api Testing. Karate helps completely to apply BDD. Program includes introduction to BDD with Karate and RestAssured. Program includes demos and hands-on.

Audience

Program is primarily for participants who must be software savvy testers and developers who aspire to use RestAssured with Junit & Karate to efficiently conduct java api testing.

Prerequisites

Participant must be able to code in core java with standard library.
