IF you are looking for api testing solution along with service virtualization, then look no further than this tool. This tool also forces you to move your testing lifecycle to much earlier phases of development which helps overall SDLC.

HttpMaster

If you're looking for a tool for building and running integration tests for API apps or other website/web services, HttpMaster is the way to go. A nice feature it offers is a free version, so you can see if it'll suit your needs before paying for it. An instance where it may not be the best option is if you're needing to build and run security tests, or requirements-based testing.

Cons

CA Application Test

  • This tool comes with a license cost and not free. Many open source tools offer free api testing solution and so making some functionality of this tool as open source would be good
  • Load testing piece is not integrated with in the tool and rather uses Blaze meter which is free.
  • Some integration with UI and api testing will make this tool even more attractive

Alternatives Considered

CA Application Test

It definitely is among the top leaders in API testing and virtualization along with the Parasoft SOA tool. Many open source API testing libraries such as Rest Assured, Karate and even Postman and SOAP UI are free which is a little bit against CA.

HttpMaster

Other honorable mentions are Paw, Insomnia Rest Client, and HTTPie. The reason we selected HttpMaster was primarily due to its ease-of-use. It's a very easy tool to set up, it has a nice UI, it offers a free version for trial purposes, and, similar to other tools, it can do all the testing we need for our applications.

Return on Investment

  • Also, service virtualization helps to minimize the costs of hitting third party services often in lower environments.
