What is API?
API is an acronym for Application Programming Interface. API acts as a communication protocol between the client and the server. In other words, it is an intermediate software component that delivers the request from one software to another and sends the response back.
What is API Testing? Where is it performed?
API testing focuses on testing the business logic, data responses, security, and performance bottlenecks of Application Programming Interfaces. In any application, the business logic processing occurs between the User Interface and the Database. So, API testing is performed at this business layer where the business processing occurs.
Why is API Testing important?
API testing is necessary to check the connection between two platforms. It is considered an essential test in software engineering as it can find those crucial defects which would otherwise be missed out in UI testing.
