Network Control Testing and Mock Services

Learn about testing web applications with advanced network control and mocking capabilities in testing frameworks.

Testing web applications is not just about the functionality of an app; it’s also about all the services that build the app and that the app relies on. Some of the problems when testing web apps preproduction are that not all the services are ready to be used during the development stage, or these services and test data are dynamically changing, and developers and testers have no control over the data.

Test automation frameworks can utilize mock services as well as network control capabilities, such as changing the clock time, to assess web application output based on triggered events.

Cypress network control and mocking

Cypress has a great set of network controls and mocking capabilities that can solve problems around a lack of control over test or production data and thereby add more reliability to the testing cycles.
