Testing RESTful Web Services made easy using the REST-assured Framework

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011

REST-assured Integration Test Tutorial Logo There are many frameworks out there to facilitate testing RESTful webservices but there is one framework I’d like to acquaint you with my favourite framework named REST-assured.

REST-assured offers a bunch of nice features like a DSL-like syntax, XPath-Validation, Specification Reuse, easy file uploads and those features we’re going to explore in the following article.

With a few lines of code and Jersey I have written a RESTful web service that allows us to explore the features of the REST-assured framework and to run tests against this service.


REST-assured vs Jersey-Test-Framework: Testing your RESTful Web-Services

Monday, September 5th, 2011

Today we’re going to take a look at two specific frameworks that enables you to efficiently test your REST-ful services: On the one side there is the framework REST-assured that offers a nice DSL-like syntax to create well readable tests – on the other side there is the Jersey-Test-Framework that offers a nice execution environment and is built upon the JAX-RS reference implementation, Jersey.

In the following tutorial we’re going to create a simple REST service first and then implement integration tests for this service using both frameworks.

The title of this article might be misleading due to the fact that I am not going to compare both frameworks to choose a winner, just showing the different approach ..


Contract-First Web-Services using JAX-WS, JAX-B, Maven and Eclipse

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Using the contract-first approach to define a web service offers some advantages in contrast to the code-first approach.

In the following tutorial we’re going to take a look at some details of this approach and we’re going to implement a real SOAP service using JAX-WS, Maven and the Eclipse IDE.

Finally we’re going to run our service implementation on an embedded Jetty instance and we’re going to take a look at soapUI and how to test our service using this neat tool.
