Description Microservices are independent, single-responsibility units of code that form a system with other microservices.
It's difficult to test an individual microservice since each one depends on the other services.
Mountebank solves this conundrum through service virtualization - imitating other components in the system so that you can test a microservice in isolation. Testing Microservices with Mountebank is your guide to the ins and outs of testing microservices with service virtualization.
This book also explains using mountebank for load testing, in a continuous delivery pipeline, and more.
