More and more companies are using virtualization to improve productivity, reduce testing costs, and deploy quality APIs more quickly. With API virtualization, your development teams can create virtual APIs that enables them to perform frequent and comprehensive testing even when the API is still being developed. Lexington Soft offers SmartBear’s ReadyAPI Virtualization, a tool that provides mocking and service virtualization for anyone in the delivery pipeline.
ReadyAPI Virtualization Reduces Dependencies and Delays
Using ReadyAPI Virtualization, you can create test suites before the service is built or implemented. You can generate your virtual service with ReadyAPI, then start writing production ready integrations, performance tests, or functional tests – even if the web service is not ready or unavailable. This enables you to decouple your own processes from unavailable databases or services, and avoid rate limits and overcharges in 3rd party APIs.
If you use definition-driven development, the ability to import and virtualize your API definition (OAS, WSDL) will allow you to start developing and testing right away before your actual API is deliverable.
ReadyAPI also has the ability to generate dynamic mock data on the fly so that you can run tests even when you don’t have access to a database or you require more data than your database contains. You can also configure different network latency and server capacity scenarios to test the performance of your API.
Powerful & Easy to Use
ReadyAPI Virtualization supports virtualization of HTTP, REST, SOAP, JMS and JDBC protocols. You don’t need a lot of technical knowledge or coding experience to use it. Any team member can easily create and deploy dynamic, virtualized APIs, DBs, and UIs. You can import OAS, WSDL, or other API definitions or record live API or UI traffic to get started.
You can run and share your virtualized web service from a web browser or other local client, or deploy it on a private or public cloud. Create, configure, and deploy on your local machine and then share it to your team by dragging it to the appropriate server. Finally, you can track and manage your virtual services by analyzing traffic and performance from a web UI.
