Mixing it up with Testing

Aditi Mulay

Short talk - in English

We always think of tests across different layers in the application as separate entities. Our testing strategy is defined as one type of test for each layer in the testing pyramid: UI tests for front end layer, API/webservice and database tests for the business and backend layer. But wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could pick a tool out of our automation bag and use it as the test requires? Having the ability to mix UI tests with APIs and use them across these self imposed boundaries would be beneficial in terms of execution time saved, more stability and make an impact. 

 As part of this talk, Aditi will demonstrate how to write test cases that step through the UI and also leverage  API/webservice calls. She will go over how to implement framework that will support testing different layers.
