Performance Center Tip: Load testing of a REST API, using HP LoadRunner’s web_custom_request

In recent years, Representational State Transfer (REST) has become a dominant model for software architecture, especially for Web-based applications. Today, most large websites and Web applications on the Internet have REST APIs. Some examples of websites using REST APIs include Twitter, Google, Flickr and so on.
The great thing about a REST API is that it is usually well-defined and therefore allows clear separation between the client logic and the server logic. This property in itself is very beneficial for both functional and load testing of the application server. In the following article we will demonstrate an easy way to test your application’s REST API using HP LoadRunner’s web_custom_request method.


Please check the following document, that contains REST API Basics and a Test Case.
