APImetrics has announced the launch of the APImetrics API Performance Test Solution, a new kind of end-to-end API testing and monitoring service that tests an API's functionality and speed of response using complex, authenticated API calls. Most API testing services typically check to see if an API is online by pinging the API address and then reporting the latency of the ping. Using API calls allows the APImetrics service to provide comprehensive monitoring and analysis of the actual performance of APIs.
This is the final part of our API Testing series. In this article we will talk about what's coming up in the near future that will change how we test and deliver new APIs. Included are looks at the possible effects of newer architectural styles such as GraphQL and gRPC, and new tooling.
