API mocking is a technique used to simulate the behavior of an API without actually connecting to the real API. It is useful for various reasons, including testing, isolation, development, and cost reduction. By using API mocking, developers can test their code without relying on the availability of the real API, isolate the code being tested from the behavior of the API, work on their code even when the API is not yet available, and reduce the number of requests they make to the real API, thus saving money.
WireMock is a flexible tool for building mock APIs and can operate as either a standalone server or as a managed service through WireMock Cloud.

This segment of Software Engineering Daily is brought to you by Privacy Dynamics, the simple solution for anonymizing data intelligently.
Development and testing environments are the number one source of costly data breaches. Privacy Dynamics creates a de-identified copy of your production data in minutes, allowing developers to maintain their velocity and improve testing without taking on unnecessary compliance and security risks.
Using a proprietary approach based on the latest research, Privacy Dynamics automatically detects and eliminates PII while maintaining the schema, format, scale, and analytical utility of the source data. With a simple integration into any data store, Privacy Dynamics anonymizes data in Postgres, MySQL, Snowflake, Big Query, S3 and more.
Are you letting sensitive PII land in development and testing environments? Eliminate the #1 threat of a data breach and start using de-identified data in your development and testing environments by signing up for a free account today at http://privacydynamics.io/
