In addition to testing your application's user interface, you should also test the non-GUI (service) layers to ensure that the APIs that run your application are working properly. Using UFT, you can create automated API tests that do this for you.
When you create an API test, you create an overall test flow consisting of test steps which individually test the application's API processes. You provide the input and checkpoint properties for these test steps, and UFT runs the test in your application. When the test run finishes, you can check the results to see how your application is functioning.
In this part, you will learn how to create API tests for a variety of different types of applications and services.
