Automated setup and testing

Every feature in MockLab is accessible via a REST API.

The provisioning API supports the creation, querying and deletion of mock APIs.

The mocking API supports configuration of an individual mock API, including stub management, request verification, proxying, fault injection and more. It is 100% compatible with WireMock’s API and can therefore be used with any WireMock client library. See the article on automated testing with Java for more details.
