Ultimate Testing Strategy for Microservices

Switching to microservices gives you the flexibility, scalability, and agility to evolve and progress. However, their complex structure acts as an obstacle when it comes to testing them. This guide is your optimal solution for mitigating any such obstacle and building a robust test suite for your microservices

 Inter-Service Dependency

Each individual service is dependent on another for its proper functioning. The more services there are, the higher the number of interservice communications that might fail.

Finding the Root Cause of Failure

When multiple services talk to each other, a failure can show up in any service, but the cause of that problem can originate from a different service deep down.

Unexpected Functional Changes

As teams strive to release quickly, the rate at which failures are introduced rises. These rapid and continuous code changes make multi-repo systems more vulnerable to unintended failures.

Difficulty in Localizing the Issue

Each autonomous service's failure can have damaging effects that propagate far and wide, making identifying and localizing the issue difficult or impossible without the right tools.


Why you should consider this Whitepaper

Microservice architecture is considered an evolutionary way to build an IT system, one which comes with several advantages. However, it also introduces typical challenges, which can turn into problems if not appropriately addressed. Testing is one of the biggest challenges on the list.

However, with the right approach, testing microservices can be made simple, fast and scalable driving business success.


This whitepaper talks about the ultimate solution to overcome the challenge of testing microservices, empowering you to stay ahead of the curve and achieve success in the digital age.
