Loosely coupled systems (a.k.a. bounded contexts / distributed systems/microservices) are gaining more and more traction. This of course leads to a growing demand to automatically and reliably ensure that these modular systems play nicely together. The current industry-strength approach for testing APIs 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 explores how you can go beyond CDCT by leveraging modelling in combination with an approach borrowed from formal methods.
