Overall Course Objectives
Postman is a great tool to make requests without the hassle of writing a single code just to test an API’s functionality.
When you work on a web application, you typically would write the code for different kinds of forms like the login and registration form, or you would most likely write the code for different kinds of routes to handle various types of requests. You do this because you want to “test” or see the intended results directly in the browser.
With Postman, the test is more elegant. All you need to do is paste in a route to Postman’s Request URL bar (1), select the Request method (GET, POST, PUT, etc.) (2) on the dropdown box to its left, and hit Send. You would then get a Response in very easy-to-read JSON format (3) confirming that your request was successful. It’s that easy!
By the end of this course, you will know how to use Postman as a testing tool. You will learn how to write tests in Postman and automatically run those tests using an automation tool all this while using simple but real-world APIs.
