Beyond Consumer-Driven Contract Testing – Nicole Rauch – KanDDDinsky 2018

video:

Loosely coupled systems (a.k.a. distributed systems / microservices) are gaining more and more traction. This implies that there is a growing demand to automatically and reliably ensure that these modular systems play nicely together. The current industry-strength approach for testing the APIs between components is Consumer-Driven Contract Testing (CDCT). Despite its unquestionable improvements over naive integration tests, it still has a number of weaknesses.
This talk points out these weaknesses and shows how we can go beyond CDCT by leveraging modelling in combination with an approach borrowed from formal methods.
