Make the next step in your test automation career with REST Assured!

Testing and validating REST services in Java is harder than in dynamic languages such as Ruby and Groovy. REST Assured brings the simplicity of using these languages into the Java domain.

“REST Assured. API test automation for beginners” tutorial is created for Manual Software Testers and Test Automation Engineers that want to learn how to quickly start automating REST API tests.

Every step, from the set up to executing your automated REST API test, is explained in detail.

This course requires some java or other OOP knowledge.

This course is designed for beginners in REST Assured, but not for beginners in test automation.

More and more Software QA positions require some test automation, and not just UI level test automation. Selenium WebDriver experience is often not enough to land high paying SDET and Test Automation job. It’s important to be able to automate API tests. Using tools such as Postman or SoapUI may be good enough for manual testers, but if you want to call yourself an experienced test automation engineer, you need to know how to develop your tests using code and tools like REST Assured.

At the end of this course, students will be able to automate Rest API tests with REST Assured using Java and TestNG framework. Execute every possible REST method and use advanced RESTAssured features. Use TestNG features for better test structure and easy framework maintenance.

And most importantly, be able to receive a promotion at the current job, or get a new job that requires Rest Assured or other test automation experience.

Who this course is for:

  • Testers that use UI tools for API testing
  • Testers that want to take their test automation career to another level

Another good course. However, I spent a few hours trying to figure out how to fix the Serialization and De-Serialization part. Because it keeps failing in my end. Anyway, I still need to redo this course 1-2 more times to solidify everything that I have learned. But for now, I need to create my own mini API rest assured project and use the knowledge I gain so I can understand it better.
