API Testing with Python Module

Module Title: Mastering API Testing with Python


Module Description:

This module provides a comprehensive overview of API testing using Python, covering key concepts, techniques, and tools for testing RESTful APIs. Participants will learn how to write automated tests for APIs using popular Python libraries such as requests, unittest, and pytest. Through hands-on exercises and practical examples, students will gain proficiency in testing API endpoints, handling authentication, parameterizing tests, and generating test reports.


Module Objectives:


  • Understand the importance of API testing in software development.
  • Learn how to write automated API tests using Python.
  • Explore different types of API tests: functional tests, integration tests, and performance tests.
  • Gain proficiency in testing RESTful APIs using Python libraries.
  • Develop skills in test automation, parameterization, and reporting for API testing.
