Restlet and Hewlett Packard Enterprise Partner to Bring API Testing Capabilities to HPE Systinet Users
REST APIs unit testing, “try out” and functional testing now available to HP Systinet users through integration with DHC by Restlet
Palo Alto, CA, April 13, 2016 – Restlet, providers of the leading API Platform as a Service and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced integration between HPE Systinet, the leading API management software, and DHC by Restlet, a web-based testing tool for REST APIs.
Under the terms of the technology partnership, users of HPE Systinet benefit from the ability to invoke DHC by Restlet from within the Systinet graphical user interface to perform test calls against web APIs. This new API testing feature brings to API developers the capability to “try out” any RESTful API in a few clicks, including testing query parameters, response codes and security. It also lets developers log responses to the calls made in order to document the behavior of the API. Any test created with DHC by Restlet can be saved in order to be reused, automated, or included in a broader functional test scenario.
“Testing is critical at each stage of an API project,” said Jérôme Louvel, Chief Geek and Founder of Restlet. “DHC by Restlet provides essential technology to API managers and developers for validating the features of their APIs, and to API consumers for discovering the behavior of APIs they need to call in their applications. We are excited that Hewlett Packard Enterprise has added the testing capabilities of DHC by Restlet to HPE Systinet and we look forward to supporting users of Systinet in their adoption of these features.”
“Users of HPE Systinet need to be able to test and validate web APIs,” said Miroslav Malecha, Senior Product Manager, Enterprise Maps & Systinet at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “We are glad to partner with the API experts from Restlet and to be able to provide their leading edge technology to our users.”
DHC by Restlet is a web-based testing tool for REST APIs. It provides the following capabilities:
- API invocation and interaction: through an intuitive browser interface, developers and consumers of APIs can make calls to APIs to validate their functional behavior, testing different parameters and values without writing a program or script.
- API testing: API developers and managers easily create and run unit tests as well as complete testing scenarios for APIs. Thanks to plugins for Maven and Jenkins, these tests can be added to a Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery toolchain.DHC by Restlet can be downloaded from the Chrome Web Store. A Free Plan is available for all users, and more advanced capabilities are offered in the Solo Plan, Team Plan and Scale Plan, starting at $9 per month.
Integration with DHC by Restlet is available in version 10.02 of HPE Systinet. DHC by Restlet must be downloaded and installed separately.
