Hewlett-Packard is looking to make its application testing tools more accessible than ever via implementations that are hosted in the cloud. Developers can access these tools via RESTful APIs. Kelly Emo, director of product marketing for HP Software, says that by making HP LoadRunner 12 and HP Performance Center 12 available as a cloud service, HP is making a concerted effort to introduce a broader spectrum of organizations to its application testing tools.
Paidpiper, mobile payments processing provider, offers its unique mobile payments platform via the Paidpiper API. Instead of relying on network security to ensure reliability and compliance, Paidpiper's unique approach secures the smartphone making the transaction to prevent malfeasance and fraud. By securing the smartphone itself, no need for additional POS hardware becomes necessary.
To enable developers to test API calls without backend integration, Amazon has released Mock-Integration. The method enables testing before app development is complete.
