I’m in the process of writing a new eBook on load testing at the level of APIs vs. Web applications. I recently spoke with Niclas Reimertz, Managing Director of SmartBear Sweden and co-founder of SoapUI, to get his take on these two different domains. In the following clip, Niclas speaks about the subtle but distinct differences between load testing APIs and Web applications—and why we need to do both.
The next logical question is: Do you really need two different tools to load test APIs and Web applications? Here’s why Niclas feels that two best-of-breed tools like LoadUIWeb and LoadUI are necessary to thoroughly test any API based Web application.
