ReVoman | A Template-Driven API automation tool for JVM

ReVoman | A Template-Driven API automation tool for JVM

- The majority of JVM SaaS applications are REST-based and [API-first](https://www.postman.com/api-first/).
- But to write [API automation](https://www.postman.com/api-platform/api-test-automation/), we either have low-level tools like[REST Assured](https://rest-assured.io/) which are specific to a service or domain and are rigid to reuse, extend and difficult to maintain. Or tools like Postman which don't live with the code and need altogether a different skill set to write and maintain.
- Reimagine API automation with a tool that strikes a balance between flexibility and ease of use, by letting you plug postman collections into your JVM programs/tests
- ReVoman is an Open-source template-driven API automation tool for JVM (Java/Kotlin) from the API-first SaaS company Salesforce.
- A traditional Integration test when migrated to use ReVoman has 89% low-code, more transparent and has low Cognitively complexity

    place over there That’s Automation Wild West Tests @GopalAkshintala
  3. May have relatively less emphasis on Test design Specific to

    a Service or Domain Rigid to reuse, extend & difficult to maintain May deviate from real end-user interaction Wild West Tests @GopalAkshintala
  4. Universal API Automation tool? Balance between strictness and flexibility Low

    Code and Low Cognitive Complexity Augment manual Persona testing @GopalAkshintala
