LIVE AUTOMATION TESTER COURSE - REST-assured & Cucumber for API Automation Testing

Work on an API Automation Testing Project using REST-assured, Cucumber & Java

Firstly, the key objective of LIVE Automation Tester Course is to learn API Test Automation Tools and Skills from a Project Perspective and put the Project Essentials into practice based on hands-on LIVE Automation Testing Projects and numerous examples. This approach helps trainees to quickly and productively add API Automation Testing Tools in demand to CV instead of inefficiently spending several months learning them from a theory perspective.

Secondly, you would work on an Automation Testing Project using Cucumber BDD, REST-assured and JAVA - which would be reviewed by a professional trainer and an automation expert
