The Data Exchange API is a RESTful data service based on the Open Data Protocol that can be used to send data from a third-party tool into NeoLoad.
OData is a standardized protocol for creating and reading data APIs. Odata builds on core protocols like http and commonly accepted methodologies like REST. The result is a uniform way to create full-featured data APIs.
NeoLoad 7.1 receives external data to generate the results displayed in the GUI.
The Data Exchange API module makes it easy to integrate data from a third party tool, like Perfecto Mobile, Jamo Solutions or Selenium.
The Data Exchange API can be used with any client and there is already a Java client and a C# client to make the use of the API easier.
Neoload Open API currently accepts JSON format.
JSON is a lightweight data-interchange format. It is easy for humans to read and write. JSON is built on a collection of name/value pairs implemented in most modern languages.
You can create your own scripts to send data to the Neoload Server from any application.
