API testing is different from GUI testing, but it doesn’t take long to master. What is an API? API is an acronym for Application Programming Interface. It enables communication and data exchange between two separate software systems. A software system implementing an API contains functions/subroutines which can be executed by another software system.
API: An application programming interface (API) is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications. An API expresses a software component in terms of its operations, inputs, outputs, and underlying types. An API defines functionalities that are independent of their respective implementations, which allows definitions and implementations to vary without compromising the interface.

But, many do not realize that much of the functionality of a program comes from APIs in the operating system or the program’s dynamic-link libraries (DLL).
