Developing microservices without automated testing is self-defeating AND risky.
Chapters 9 and 10 of my book describe how to write automated tests for microservices-based applications.
My Oracle Code One 2019 talk is a good overview of how to test microservices.
The primary goal of the microservice architecture is to enable the rapid, reliable delivery of software using DevOps. One of the pillars of DevOPs is automated testing. Yet many organizations attempt to adopt microservices while still doing manual testing. What’s more, the microservice architecture has its own distinctive automated testing challenges. In this presentation, I describe how to descend the test pyramid and replace slow, brittle end-to-end tests with faster, more reliable tests for individual services. You will learn how to write tests that ensure service APIs evolve while preserving backwards compatibility. I describe how by running these tests in a deployment pipeline you will fully benefit from microservices.

Microservices.io is brought to you by Chris Richardson. Experienced software architect, author of POJOs in Action, the creator of the original CloudFoundry.com, and the author of Microservices patterns.
Chris teaches comprehensive workshops for architects and developers that will enable your organization use microservices effectively.
Avoid the pitfalls of adopting microservices and learn essential topics, such as service decomposition and design and how to refactor a monolith to microservices.Learn more
Chris offers numerous other resources for learning the microservice architecture.

Consider signing up for a two hour, highly focussed, consulting session.
My virtual bootcamp, distributed data patterns in a microservice architecture, is now open for enrollment!
It covers the key distributed data management patterns including Saga, API Composition, and CQRS.
It consists of video lectures, code labs, and a weekly ask-me-anything video conference repeated in multiple timezones.
The regular price is $395/person but use coupon RESVJCMC to sign up for $95 (valid until September 26th, 2023). There are deeper discounts for buying multiple seats.
Take a look at my Manning LiveProject that teaches you how to develop a service template and microservice chassis.
Engage Chris to create a microservices adoption roadmap and help you define your microservice architecture,
Use the Eventuate.io platform to tackle distributed data management challenges in your microservices architecture.
Eventuate is Chris's latest startup. It makes it easy to use the Saga pattern to manage transactions and the CQRS pattern to implement queries.
