Backend API automation tool
I'm in the middle of finding a tool to test our backend api's (written in c-sharp). I've been recommend to use perl modules ( LWP::UserAgent; and XML::Simple; and Dataumper. Is there any other or language that can better server my purpose? Request type is http and response is simple XML so far. We might move to Json responses in the future. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Re: Backend API automation tool
If it's a web-based API, as you seem to be suggesting, then any language that can handle http requests and responses (and parse XML) should work -- and there are lots of them. So I would suggest picking one that you already know and are familiar with. If you know and like perl then it's probably a good choice.
