Applies to ReadyAPI 2.8, last modified on August 16, 2019

ReadyAPI includes samples that show how you can work with real-life web APIs: Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, and others.

The changes you make to sample projects cannot be saved. If you make some changes, you will have to save the project as a new one. The original file will remain unchanged.


You can find sample projects in the <ReadyAPI>/tutorials/API folder:

• Windows: <Program Files>/SmartBear/ReadyAPI-2-8-0/tutorials/API
     Program Files or Program Files (x86)
• Linux: /home/<user-name>/SmartBear/ReadyAPI-2-8-0/tutorials/API
