Questions that could use Community input!
These are questions I don’t know the answer to - API testing is a huge area, and there’s lots I haven’t done yet Hopefully the community can answer some of these questions!
Is this for mobile apps? I believe you can do that with Charles, as well as Fiddler - set up a proxy from your device so you can see the traffic on your computer that is going on the device. I’m not a mobile tester, so would love some other ideas here if anyone has them!
Great question for the community! I don’t write my API tests for performance testing (we have a separate team that uses their own tools for that), so I’m not sure which would be best. Folks, feel free to chime in on this one!
I haven’t used them, but in general I like to see the code I’m working with. “codeless” to me just means configurations that creates code that you can’t see/touch. I prefer to have full control over the automation I’m writing. Maybe other folks in the community have experience with these, though?
The same tools you’re using to write individual tests should work for end to end as well. I haven’t worked with Kafka so I’m not sure of the nuances there
This isn’t an area that I’m very experienced in - I’ve used mocks in unit tests, but not for developing against. I know there’s a feature in Postman but beyond a brief tutorial I haven’t used it.
I suggest googling or asking the community!
I have never tested gRPC but I’m sure the community has some great ideas!
Unfortunately I’ve never used jmeter so you’d need to ask the community this one!
I’m not familiar with proto messages, so I’m not sure how mocking them would differ from mocking otherwise. Maybe the community can help?
As I said in the AMA, I haven’t had the opportunity to work in the GraphQL world so I’m not sure. The community could help on this one!
