Taking service oriented-architecture (SOA)'s "building block" approach to the next level, application programming interfaces (APIs) have become a hugely popular strategy for bringing services to a broad base of customers across the world-wide development ecosystem.

But this extreme exposure of services as APIs gives rise to four unique challenges:

  • A significantly increased attack surface area 

  • High potential for unintentional or malicious misuse 

  • The need to provide API consumers a test environment 

  • And exceptionally unpredictable demand. 

Read this white paper to discover:

  • Why many SOA testing strategies are equally effective for API testing that addresses these four challenges 

  • How to leverage and extend the core tenets of SOA testing to ensure that your APIs are built to survive the extreme they'll face "in the wild"

  • And five API testing "must haves".
