Patent Issued for System and methods for application programming interface validation and testing (USPTO 11418624): Allstate Insurance Company – Insurance News Net

2022 SEP 06 (NewsRx) — By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Insurance Daily News — According to news reporting originating from Alexandria, Virginia, by NewsRx journalists, a patent by the inventors Chhabria, Reeta (Arlington Heights, IL, US), Puranik, Shruti (Palatine, IL, US), Verdhan, Sidhi (Northbrook, IL, US), filed on June 23, 2021, was published online on August 16, 2022.
The assignee for this patent, patent number 11418624, is Allstate Insurance Company (Northbrook, Illinois, United States).
Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: “An application programming interface (API) connects a computer program to a programming library. Moore’s law predicted that the number of transistors on a computer chip would double every two years while the chip’s price would remain constant. “Moore’s law” meant consumers could buy the same technology two years later for about the same price. Fifty years later, Moore’s law prediction has endured to the idea that technology companies have recognized Moore’s law as a benchmark they must meet, or fall behind in the market. Patrons have come to expect technological products to be faster, cheaper, and more compact over time. This expectation seems to have driven trends of rapid growth in computing power, smaller devices, the ability to connect to the Internet, and reduction in cost and big data. There is a need to improve the technological processing in the new computing era including APIs.”
In addition to obtaining background information on this patent, NewsRx editors also obtained the inventors’ summary information for this patent: “The following presents a simplified summary in order to provide a basic understanding of some aspects of the disclosure. The summary is not an extensive overview of the disclosure. It is neither intended to identify key or critical elements of the disclosure nor to delineate the scope of the disclosure. The following summary merely presents some concepts of the disclosure in a simplified form as a prelude to the description below.
“Aspects of the disclosure relate to methods, computer-readable media, systems, and apparatuses for receiving data. In one aspect, an electronic computer implemented method of application programming interface testing and validation is provided. The method includes, via a computer-based network, receiving a plurality of executable code requests for a first plurality of uniform resource network nodes associated on a first network protocol and a second plurality of uniform resource network nodes associated on a second network protocol. In the method each of the executable code requests are associated with a baseline attribute data value. Further, the method includes electronically receiving a plurality of payload response attribute data values associated with each executable request and electronically parsing the payload response attribute values with a Parser component. The method includes electronically processing the parsed payload response attribute values with a Comparator component and mapping to each of the code requests associated with the baseline attribute value to generate a virtual hash map of key pairs.
“These and other features and advantages of the disclosure will be apparent from the additional description provided herein.”
The claims supplied by the inventors are:
“1. An electronic computer implemented method of application programming interface (API) testing and validation, comprising: via a computer-based network, receiving a plurality of executable code requests for a plurality of uniform resource network nodes, each of the executable code requests being associated with a baseline attribute data value; electronically receiving a plurality of payload response attribute data values associated with each executable code request; electronically parsing the plurality of payload response attribute data values; electronically generating a first virtual hash map comprising a mapping between each of the plurality of payload response attribute data values and each of the plurality of executable code requests; comparing the first virtual hash map to a second virtual hash map; and generating, based on the comparing, a testing report.
“2. The method of claim 1, wherein one or more of the plurality of uniform resource network nodes are associated with Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) or Representational State Transfer (REST) protocol.
“3. The method of claim 1, wherein the comparing the first virtual hash map to the second virtual hash map comprises comparing nodes of the first virtual hash map to nodes of the second virtual hash map.
“4. The method of claim 3, wherein a comparing of a first node of the first virtual hash map to a second node of the second virtual hash map generates a difference between the first node and the second node.
“5. The method of claim 4, further comprising: creating a key value pair based on the difference.
“6. The method of claim 5, wherein the testing report comprises the key value pair.
“7. The method of claim 4, wherein the testing report comprises the difference between the first node and the second node.
“8. The method of claim 7, further comprising: electronically storing the first virtual hash map.
“9. One or more non-transitory computer readable media storing computer executable instructions that, when executed by at least one processor, cause the at least one processor to perform a method of application programming interface (API) testing and validation, comprising: via a computer-based network, receiving a plurality of executable code requests for a plurality of uniform resource network nodes, each of the executable code requests being associated with a baseline attribute data value; electronically receiving a plurality of payload response attribute data values associated with each executable code request; electronically parsing the payload response attribute data values; electronically generating a first virtual hash map comprising a mapping between each of the plurality of payload response attribute data values and each of the plurality of executable code requests; comparing the first virtual hash map to a second virtual hash map; and generating, based on the comparing, a testing report.
“10. The one or more non-transitory computer readable media of claim 9, wherein one or more of the plurality of uniform resource network nodes are associated with Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) or Representational State Transfer (REST) protocol.
