The Power of Mocking APIs with Shivani Gaba

For our second session at TestBash Netherlands, we were joined by @shivani_gaba :grin: Shivani gave us a dive into all things mocking.

If you’ve got questions for Shivani about the talk, add them here :point_down:

Remember to :heart: questions that you like to show appreciation for others.

And, if you’re trying out the example application after the talk, share your results here :wink:

When looking to mock an API, what are the key requirements that you look for in the framework that you are using?

Shivani - excellent talk!
I’ve many questions:

  • How did you learn about Wiremock?
  • Have you tried other mocking tools?
  • Has mocking ever caused more problems than solutions for you?
  • I may have missed it during the talk, but how do you keep your mocks up to date?

What would be some typical cases in which API stubbing isn’t worth the effort of creating/maintaining it?
