Version 1.12 of zato-apitest 1.12 has just been released. This version simplifies installation requirements and adds compatibility with PostgreSQL 10+ databases.

zato-apitest is an API testing tool designed from ground up with convenience and ease of use in mind. It supports REST, SQL, Cassandra and Zato-based APIs with tests written in plain English.

There is no need for manual programming, though if required, it is easy to extend it in Python.

It ships with a built-in demo; right after the installation, run apitest demo and a sample test case will be set up and run against a test server, as below:

$ sudo pip install zato-apitest
$ apitest demo

The tool is part of the Zato API and backend server platform but can be used standalone with or without Zato services. More information, including documentation and usage examples can be found here.
