Karate is a relatively new open-source framework for testing micro-services. But within just two years, Karate’s adoption by the community has been remarkable, as evident from the rising tide of Stack Overflow questions and the 1600+ stars the project currently has on GitHub. Karate was featured as one of the top 5 open-source API testing tools in a blog post on TechBeacon, within just six months of its release. It now regularly turns up in blog-posts, social-media mentions, and believe it or not – even job-listings as a desired skill. Karate has clearly filled a gap in the industry for a simple yet powerful tool that makes simple – the business of dealing with complex HTTP payloads. The unique mix of a Domain Specific Language (DSL), embedded JavaScript engine and native support for JsonPath and XPath gives Karate an edge over other solutions. Karate is the only open-source tool to combine API test-automation, mocks and performance-testing into a single, unified framework. Besides powerful JSON & XML assertions, you can run tests in parallel for speed – which is critical for HTTP API testing. In this session you will get to hear from the creator of Karate and understand how it greatly simplifies API testing of all kinds. Auth and header manipulation, complex response assertions, dynamically chained calls and data-driven testing are just some of the key capabilities of Karate.
