Continuous Deployment and Continuous Integration are methodologies used by many companies these days for their software development lifecycle. It allows for quicker, more agile responses to customer needs and faster product improvements. A key factor in achieving these goals is automation. Most of the steps in the development lifecycle can be automated, and this includes testing. In fact, continuous integration and continuous deployment would not be possible without continuous testing. And testing, of course, means not just functional testing but also performance testing.

Nouvola Announces Availability of Webhooks to Augment API Capabilities

Posted by Product Update on Sep 14, 2017 4:39:16 PM

Instant notification anyone? We believe in an API-centric world. Hence we are very excited to introduce Nouvola WebHooks, a very powerful yet simple mechanism for web communications that expands our API capabilities.

What is a Webhook?

A webhook lets a developer provide a URL to which an API will send data.

Sometimes people call webhooks web callbacks, but essentially a webhook lets you skip a step. With most APIs there is a request followed by a response. No request is required for a webhook, it just sends the data when they are available.

Specifically for Nouvola DiveCloud, it also removes the need to poll for test conclusion and results. DiveCloud will simply send results when they are ready. Pretty cool eh?
