Adoption of REST APIs has increased manifold in recent days and REST has become a leading standard for building web APIs. The era of pure desktop-based applications is continuously going down. People are shifting from NG to web and further mobile-based applications.
Most of the web-based applications or mobile applications are backed by REST APIs. Testing this type of applications has become a major challenge. Various tools/frameworks/libraries (utilities) are there to automate the testing activity. People choose these utilities depending upon their context, environment, budget and skill level, etc.
In this post, we will discuss the need for automation followed by various challenges behind REST API Automation Testing. I will appreciate questions/feedback if you have any ☺
