The demand for greater mobile access is driving the shift from XML/SOAP to JSON/REST. In fact, ProgrammableWeb predicts that the number of new JSON APIs will exceed the number of new XML ones at some point this year. Now that RESTful APIs are increasingly the technology of choice for enabling broader business connectivity, enterprises are looking for a proven solution for hardening back-end services to ensure the integrity of critical mobile transactions.
The latest release of Parasoft's enterprise-grade API Testing solution focuses on ensuring that rich regression suites for JSON can be more rapidly constructed, continuously executed, and effectively managed. By providing increased control over assertion management and test data management, Parasoft eliminates the need for complex scripting and allows less technical resources to test business-critical transactions.
"APIs are the lifeline to mobile application functionality and performance," noted Wayne Ariola, Chief Strategy Officer at Parasoft. "Placing these APIs into a rich regression suite is imperative for the success of your mobile applications and your business. The weakest link in the transaction will kill customer satisfaction. "
