Start with API modelling

Note that API modelling requires a valid JOSF license.

Testing API’s – or services – is becoming an increasingly important part of the test automation process. Even though tests through the GUI are a reliable way of testing, testing API’s is more robust and a lot faster than using a web browser.

JOSF provides ways to test against your applications API’s, by creating models of the requests. From the API modelling editor, you can create and execute your API’s. After creating requests, you can use these in your test steps, so that validations can be performed. Because JOSF treats API requests like any other test step, you can execute API requests in a chain to perform API chain tests, or combine them with web browser interaction tests.
