In software development, coverage tests track what functions and source lines are executed during the test run, usually, during a functional or unit test run. The results help you estimate how much of the code base your tests covered.
With ReadyAPI, you can run coverage tests of your APIs, that is, you can find out what part of your web service functionality is covered by tests. Coverage testing results provide an overview of what you have tested and what you have not, and help you understand whether your tests are complete or not.
The way you run coverage tests depends on the type of your API: SOAP or REST. See the topics of this section for complete information. ReadyAPI can also collect coverage information for SOAP virtual services that you create in ServiceV. Using this data, you can easily check what part of your virtual service is covered by incoming requests.
