SmartBear Software released a new plugin for Ready! API that integrates with Amazon API Gateway. The new plugin allows API consumers and testers to read an API from Amazon API Gateway and generate a test framework based on the API service description. Amazon API Gateway, a fully managed service that looks to make it easy for developers to create, publish, maintain, monitor and secure APIs at any scale, offers all the power of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) stack with a pay-as-you-go model.
“The Amazon API Gateway is the perfect fit for Ready! API, offering powerful capabilities within an affordable framework and an ecosystem of open source tooling like the Swagger Importer,” said John Purcell, Vice President of Products, API Readiness at SmartBear. “We’re excited to extend that power to our customers, allowing them to import an API for testing and virtualization as well as easily deploy new APIs to Amazon API Gateway.”
Testers can quickly generate a virtual API while importing from Amazon API Gateway, which allows testing of various simulations in a controlled environment. Testers can also deploy new APIs to Amazon API Gateway, using Ready! API to develop and test APIs, and deploy the API when ready to push it to a shared environment, a key differentiator of this plugin. This integration delivers 1) a quick and easy way to go from Amazon API Gateway to test, 2) power of API virtualization with a one-click setup and 3) deployment to Amazon API Gateway from within Ready! API.
Ready! API, SmartBear’s API Readiness platform, is a unified set of testing tools that includes SoapUI NG for functional testing, LoadUI NG Pro for load testing, ServiceV Pro for API service virtualization and Secure Pro for dynamic API security testing.
