• In api testing, the commonly used protocols are: HTTP, REST, SOAP, JMS and UDDI. Each protocol has its own functionality and includes the responses to the web requests sent to the API.

    1. HTTP is the type of protocol used by the World Wide Web for the message transmission and guides servers/browser in responding to the various commands.

    2. REST is defined as Representational State Transfer. This protocol includes a set of functions, useful for the developers in executing requests and responses. HTTP protocol is used to make a request in REST API

    3. SOAP stands for Simple Object Access Protocol. It is a protocol through which two computers communicate by sharing XML document. Same as REST, it runs on HTTP but unlikely is slower

    4. JMS is Java Message Service. As name suggests, JMS is a part of the Java Platform and a sort of middleware API for sending messages between two or more systems

    5. UDDI stands for Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration. A world wide protocol used for businesses to list themselves on the Internet, streamlines online transactions and helps companies to make themselves discoverable to the world
