WEB SERVICES AND VIRTUALIZATION

GCIT offers a comprehensive approach to ensure high quality APIs for the digital users. The API testing is critical as it evaluates whether the application meets functionality, reliability, performance and security standards. The application program interface is the surface, where the applications interact with other applications or users. It works as a contract between two different pieces of software. API is necessary in creating software applications, which interacts with other applications. There is a large composite system behind these applications. API is fundamental in creating value for an application. If the system API is not working properly, it will impact the system functionality. Therefore, web/API testing is crucial in software development.

We offer following services in API/web testing:

  • Unit testing: It individually checks the functionality of each APIs
  • Functionality testing: Comprehensive testing coverage of all the functions in the API layer
  • Load testing: We conduct performance testing for different levels of user load.
  • Automation testing: automation testing is an accurate method of detecting the system anomalies in API
  • Security Testing: The security testing is conducted to identify the system vulnerabilities. Our API testing strategy comprises of security scenarios such as authorization, input validation and HTTP status.

Our approach to API system testing:

  • Business modules

GCIT evaluates that different system modules and workflow are behaving properly in the application service layer

  • Compatibility with other APIs

It should be tested that the system is compatible with other APIs and working properly without any trouble

  • Third party integration
  • We run security checks to evaluate whether the third parties that interact with the system returns the same data

Our API and web service approach can increase the defect detection by 40% and reduce the testing time and efforts by approximately 20%.

 
 

In service virtualization, different interfaces such as APIs and third-party applications are simulated so that quality assurance team can verify whether the system will work smoothly in real-time conditions. These tests are conducted to evaluate that the system will demonstrate appropriate dependency behavior at the time of third party interactions. Service virtualization testing is conducted when the third party tool or the dependent system is unreliable, inaccessible, restricted or costly. It can reduce the testing efforts.

 Service virtualization is beneficial in continuous testing and agile development environment. There are several benefits of service virtualization:

Cost-effective solution:  With a methodological approach to service virtualization, the companies can reduce cost significantly by configuring test environment, simplifying access and setup cost.

High test Security: During testing, the applications are only exposed to reliable test environments. Further, synthetic environment will increase the test coverage and flexibility of the user platform.
