Atomic Talk Title: Testing microservices end-to-end in isolation with API Contracts

Testing in microservices can get tricky very quickly. Contract testing offers some ways to make testing in microservices easier, quicker and less costly.

Want to take your end-to-end tests to the next level? Want to deploy microservices with more confidence and move to continuous deployment? Then integrating contract stubs in to your end to end tests is for you.

Using Cypress & Pactflow, I will demonstrate how you can run end-to-end tests with API contracts to provide more stable, easier to maintain and a more realistic test suite.

Talk Takeaways

  • The difference between mocks and API Contracts
  • How to code isolated end-to-end tests with Cypress & Pactflow
  • Benefits of using API contract stubs
