In this exercise Dave Westerveld challenges you to figure out what services and APIs your application has while giving you guidance on how to do this.
- [Instructor] So far in this course,…you've learned a little bit about what services and APIs are…and some different ways that they can be set up.…At this point, I want to give you a little exercise.…Something to put it into practice.…So if you currently work as a tester,…spend some time trying to map out…the application you're testing.…I'll give you a few hints and pointers in this video,…but don't just watch it, sit down…and actually do the exercise.…When I say map your application, I'm not talking about…a cartographic map, I'm talking about something…like a line diagram, linking different parts…of the application together, or even a mind map,…or some lists of different parts of the application.…
Try to figure out what services it has,…what APIs are available, what kind of APIs are they,…how do they relate to each other,…what responsibilities do they have,…ask some questions about your application…and figure out how to map it out.…So as we continue in this course,…we'll look at more in depth testing strategies…
