We often hear words like functional programming…do we know how to do that? Functional programming is a style of building the structure and elements of computer programs that treats computation as the evaluation of mathematical functions and avoids mutating an object’s state. Clojure is just one of the functional programming languages that combine the approachability and interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded programming. This presentation has the goal to show how to use Clojure to create an automated testing framework for REST API testing. Clojure is a language with almost no syntax. In this presentation, it will be presented the basic features of Clojure and its libraries and the overall structure of the testing framework for REST API. The goal is to show simplicity in REST API testing.
Takeaways from the talk:
- How to write functional testing code
- Simplicity in Clojure
