Contract testing as an alternative to system testing
In the development of microservice architecture, there is a problem of testing the interaction of all microservices. With system tests, you need to assemble the entire system and run end-to-end tests. This is a complex, long and resource-intensive way.
Contract testing focuses on testing services in isolation, which speeds up the development process. At the same time, the level of reliability does not change.
