Most projects in CF now involve creating some type of consumable CFC Endpoint or API Service... do you Unit test your API, do you use Integration Tests on your API? How many ways do you test your API? Not all tests are created equal.

We build our CFCs and CF API to be consumed with CF Apps, Mobile Apps, Javascript apps and devices we haven’t even thought about yet. To be smart developers we need to be able to test our CFC endpoints, and the code that uses those endpoints.

We’ll learn how to test your API serverside with Testbox and Clientside with Jasmine. With Testbox and Jasmine both using BDD, your test code can almost be isomorphic.

Attendees should have some exposure to CFCs as endpoints, or CF API creations, and consuming with other languages/devices, in this case, JavaScript.

Attendees will learn

  • How to use Testbox to test your CFCs 2 different ways
  • Different types and ways to test JavaScript
  • Overview of client/server side testing tools
  • Building testing into your workflow
  • You are one of many that are not testing your APIs thoroughly
