Configure Eclipse with Rest Assured Framework

In this blog we would be learning How to Configure Rest Assured in our eclipse project.
In order to Setup Rest assured we require: 

1)     JAVA àAny version of Java would work but in this blog I am using JAVA 8.

2)     Maven àMaven plugin should be installed in code editor and also in our local machine to run the test cases from the command prompt.

3)     Code Editor àany code editor like the eclipse, Intellij IDEA  or Visual Studio would work. I am using Eclipse for this.

4)     Testing Framework à To validate our test we need a testing frameworks like Junit or TestNG. I will be using TestNG through out this blog.

5)     Rest Assured Jars or Maven Dependency.

2)     Add the rest assured maven dependency in our pom.xml file. In this blog I would be using below maven dependencies for different purposes.

In the next blog, we would be learning how to write our first test to automate API using Rest Assured.
