Postman is a widely used application programming interface (API) development and testing platform that simplifies the process of designing, testing, and managing APIs. This versatile tool allows developers to create and send HTTP requests, supporting various request types such as GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE. You will start this course by learning about Postman, which will allow you to send requests to HTTP APIs and perform tests on the responses, including unit testing, function testing, and end-to-end testing. Next, you will install Postman and utilize it for making requests. You will configure and set up GET requests to access resources, POST requests to create resources, PUT and PATCH requests to update resources, and DELETE requests to remove resources. Finally, you will experiment with PUT, PATCH, and DELETE requests and incorporate query parameters and path variables in your request URLs to specify filters or selection in GET requests. You will also explore headers for requests, allowing specification of information like the acceptable response format.
