Done-for-You APIs Stubbing
for Performance Testing
Isolate your application from unstable, low-capacity, expensive, wrongly-seeded API test environments.
Make every load run repeatable, save budgets and don't stress out.
Are You Tired of Unstable APIs During Performance Tests?
Did backend systems ever go down during your important load run?
Or do they merely slow down, and their response time is jittering, making your results invalid?
Do you have to pay arm and leg to reserve the high-capacity backends?
Or do you have to scale down your tests and drop the stress tests altogether?
How often have you found the backends are not seeded with matching accounts?
Does troubleshooting across multiple downstream systems drive you crazy?
Is it the same story again and again, every release,
making you feel helpless and angry?
Been There, Done That, Got XP
I’ve been in your shoes.
Since the early 2000s, I have worked with SOA / web services / APIs, helping my clients establish effective ways to test API-based applications in the performance testing phase.
I realized that performance testing is often an afterthought, and the teams lack the resources and tools to thoroughly and efficiently load-test the applications. To help, I was and am making mock services for my clients.
I’m ready to help your team, too.
The Solution is Simple: Mock the Backend APIs
Mocked APIs are always available.
Their response time and performance properties are predictable and can be configured as required. You can even simulate complex degradation scenarios!
Your test runs are easily comparable, apples to apples, and accounts are retained between releases to reproduce the scenarios exactly.
And, importantly, the mocked APIs are, in order of magnitude, less expensive than real test environments.
Do You Have the Tools and People with Skills To Make It Happen? No Worries If You Don't.
... We've saved weeks and $$$ in LT by using mocks instead of PROD-like backends.
