Critical Benefits of API Testing in Software Product Development

Executive Summary

The development of software and web services continues to adapt and evolve to meet modern demands. Within digital platforms, we’re currently witnessing an important transition from monolithic architecture to microservices. This new modular approach to software development enables better continuity between services and more efficient inter-process communication (IPC) within complex applications.

The evolution of microservices has a number of implications for software creation and testing, with an applica­tion programming interface (API) often used to manage data exchange and allow microservices to coexist with existing legacy systems. While the evolution of web services is a constant process, occasional leaps manage to change the landscape and disrupt the development cycle.
