In this course we cover the prospects of Manual and Automation Testing for Web Services/API Testing using SOAPUI and SOAPUI Pro. The main focus of the course is to test web service or API effectively with both positive and negative test as our believe is API need to be testing exhaustively so that we can help developers to make it very flexible so that any consumer can we it efficiently. Our main intent is to help individual to implement an END to END testing solution using Groovy Scripting for SOAPUI/SOAPUI Pro. Key point covered but not limited to:

  • Automation Fundamentals
  • Groovy Scripting
  • Tool expertise in SOAPUI and SOAPUI Pro
  • Framework Development
  • Test Management For Web Service/API
  • Result Reporting(HTML, .txt and .XLS)
