Runscope vs Pact: What are the differences?
Runscope: API Performance Monitoring. Keep tabs on all aspects of your API's performance with uptime monitoring, integration testing, logging and real-time monitoring; Pact: Fast, easy and reliable testing for your APIs and microservices during development. It is a code-first tool for testing HTTP and message integrations using contract tests. Contract tests assert that inter-application messages conform to a shared understanding that is documented in a contract. Without contract testing, the only way to ensure that applications will work correctly together is by using expensive and brittle integration tests.
Runscope and Pact are primarily classified as "API" and "Microservices" tools respectively.
Some of the features offered by Runscope are:
- Runscope Radar: Automatically monitor your APIs from around the globe. Integrates with PagerDuty, New Relic Insights, Keen IO, HipChat, Slack and more. Test complete API workflows with powerful assertions and notifications.
- Runscope Metrics: API performance and usage reports.
- Runscope API Traffic Inspector: Log and view API calls from any language or framework to any API to solve integration problems.
On the other hand, Pact provides the following key features:
- Get fast, reliable feedback on the compatibility of your integrations
- Ensures all your services are compatible with each other before you deploy
