A Better Approach for Testing Microservices: Testkits

Maxim Novak

Microservices are the new black; everyone is using them. Alas, when your system is composed of many microservices, testing becomes more challenging. The straight-forward approach for e2e testing no longer suffices and for integration tests it doesn’t even exist. A better way to test in this kind of an environment would be to work with a testkit of the microservice you are interacting with. By the end of this talk, you will learn how to create a testkit that covers your microservice. Testing this way will grant you a much higher level of confidence, and will portray a more accurate picture of your assumptions vs. reality. Overall it will make any integration between microservices easier, and thus benefit your colleagues and make your company progress faster.
