How to use Prism client

Dear all,

First of all, I would like to thank about Prism for mocking up a server, it is exactl what we were looking for.
But we would like also to use it for the “client mockup” in order to validate our services against their API specification. Uunfortunelly for me, I do not understand very well (quite not at all) the documentation about the Prism client.
Could you please enhance this documentation by the following elements:

  • Requirements : what do we need to use it ? What has to be installed on the computer laucnhing the client test ?
  • Architecture : how does it work ?
  • A step by step example using the petstore API.
    Thanks a lot.

Hey @ancyss.merisanu,

Thanks for writing us. You need to help me to understand a little bit better your use case because at the moment it’s not completely clear to me.

If I understand correctly, you have a client application, and you would like to make sure that you’re sending the right data to the server; in such case, you do not really need to use the client API, but rather just spin up a Prism instance in proxy mode pointing to the final API, and it will report back the errors and inconsistencies.

In case I failed to understand — a clarification from your side would help me!

Cheers,

V.
