The API Challenges is an application which you can use to practice API testing and automating. It is written in Java, runnable locally and has been deployed to the cloud for easy access. It contains a functional API and a set of challenges to work through.
The API Challenges is a simple CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) API.
It also has a set of challenges that are tracked as you explore and test the API.
Everything runs in memory, or stores challenge session ot files, so there is no database to worry about.
