Progress® Test Studio® for APIs allows you to write C# or Visual Basic code and have it executed using coded steps as part of the test execution. Code files can either be associated as code-behind to test cases or be added to the project as standalone code items.
Coded steps can be useful for handling complex scenarios that cannot be achieved using the built-in functionality of the Test Studio® for APIs UI. Use Coded steps in cases involving data manipulation, calculations, access to environment data (like getting the current date and time), complex conditional logic or any other scenario that you find useful.
Standalone code items enable you to create reusable libraries of code for better maintainability of your projects.
