Writing automated tests is an essential part of the development process, but it's not unusual to find codebases with little or no test coverage. Compared to unit tests, integration tests bring even more challenges since they get the same results running in different OSs (different developer machines and CI pipelines), but they are necessary in evaluating the effectiveness of different software modules when they are interconnected.
Most developers have been in a situation where they need to make mock API calls. Whether you need to mock a call to help your team implement new features or you need a mock server for integration testing, mountebank is the answer.
In a real life scenario, automation framework is designed as a structural and conceptual module that provides high extensibility, maintainability, libraries, and guidelines for future development. The following are basic steps to help start designing and implementing automation framework using Selenium Webdriver, J-unit, and Java in Eclipse IDE.
