Presentation: Tweet"BDD for REST APIs"
Forward-looking development teams have started to use Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) in the past few years to test their code against clearly-expressed acceptance criteria. The adoption of tools like Cucumber, JBehave, RSpec and EasyB show that this trend is growing. We examine how these ideas can translate to acceptance testing and smoke testing REST APIs, capturing how clients use the APIs, and more. Based on how we used Cucumber for Best Buy's BBY Open Commerce API, we will look at several examples for raising your game in testing your REST APIs.
Target audience: Intermediate developers, architects and testers
