As part of our API Testing series, we will see “Tools to test SOAP and REST APIs manually and automation” in this post.
There are many tools available for API testing in market with many advanced features. Some tools are free and some are paid. You get basic features when you use a free version. I think there are some good free tools which will cover your API testing requirements for both manual and automation. It all depends on Company or project which tool they prefer. You should be good in understanding of basics of API testing so that you can work on any tool.
Below is a list of some tools which are commonly used in industry now. Here you go:
|Tool Name||Availability||Supports||Kind of Testing||Know More Here|
|Rest Assured - Java||Free||REST/It supports SOAP but it will be complex.||Automation||http://rest-assured.io/|
|UFT- Visual Basic||Paid||REST/SOAP||Automation||https://www.microfocus.com/en-us/products/unified-functional-automated-testing/overview|
