In this video, Nate shows how to use a tool like Postman or Fiddler to make requests to the API and verify the responses.
- [Instructor] Let's test our new controller. I'm going to use the Postman client, but you can use Fiddler, cURL, or any other HTTP client you prefer. You can get Postman from getpostman.com. I've already downloaded and installed it. I need to compile and run the project by clicking on the play button. IIS Express will randomly assign a port to the project, which you can find in the launchSettings.json file. This is the absolute local URL of our application. I'm going to copy this into Postman and then send a GET request.
This will hit our root controller, which will send back a JSON document. And we have the reflected absolute URL of the project. So far this API isn't doing anything groundbreaking, but we know everything is working. Next, we'll update the media type that's returned from the API.
