Dave Westerveld walks you through a solution that shows you how to find 500 errors in a sample application.
(swooshing music)…- [Instructor] There are at least two ways…to see a 500 error in this application.…The service is not very rebus,…so it's quite possible that you found different errors…than the one I found.…If so, great work.…The whole point of this exercise is to get you thinking…about how to test APIs.…So, any issues that you find…are helping you along that path.…Since I know how to do it,…I'm going to be following a fairly direct path…to showing the issues.…But of course, you would've needed…to do some poking around to figure out the structure…and layout of the application.…And so the way you that you got to it…is going to be different than what I did.…
So, the first way that we get a 500…is by trying to post to an existing object.…So, let's shift over to postman,…and I will walk you through…the process of how you might go about finding this.…So, I've got up here, the URL.…This is the local host, blog post,…and let's do blog post one,…and we'll just do a GET on this for now,…just so we can see the structure of it.…
