When you’re testing an API, or really any kind of software, functional testing and performance testing are available. These two types of tests are not an either/or-choice, but adequate software quality assurance needs them both to cover different surface areas and requirements. My latest article for my client BlazeMeter is called “Functional Testing vs. Performance Testing and the Value of Using Both”. After comparing API testing and API monitoring in general, I took a deeper dive into testing now. I’m always happy to get feedback on my articles and I’m open to new technical writing contracts as well - please check out my Writing page.
