I am new to API testing. What are the tools that I need to be familiar with for doing API testing?

Hi all, I am new to API testing and looking for some knowledge about some tools, so can you tell me what are the tools that I need to be familiar with for doing API testing?

Following are the tools which will surely come in handy while tackling the API testing:

  1. Postman
  2. SoapUI
  3. Karate DSL
  4. HTTPmaster
  5. Restconsole
  6. Restmaster
  7. Airborne
  8. Webinject

I would prefer Postman, but it is possible that SoapUI or any other tool suit you better.
