About this book
I wrote Testing Microservices with Mountebank to show how service virtualization helps you test microservices, and how mountebank is a powerful service virtualization tool. That necessarily requires building a deep familiarity with mountebank—the middle section of this book is dedicated to the subject—but many of the lessons apply with any service virtualization tool.
Mountebank is a developer-friendly tool, which makes developers a primary audience of Testing Microservices with Mountebank. Some familiarity with test automation is expected, but I avoid using any advanced language features throughout this book to keep the focus on the tool and the approach. Automation-friendly QA testers also will find value in this book, as will those who specialize in performance testing. Finally, service virtualization is increasingly an architectural concern, and within these pages I hope to arm solution architects with the arguments they need to make the right decisions.
You’ll find three parts and 10 chapters in this book.
