How to create test class to improve code coverage.

Hi All,

I have developed a trigger for contact on update. as soon as contact update am calling below class from tigger and passing contact id. I am new to write test class for call outs. Can someone help to create test class for below method.
Thanks in adcance. 
public class Helper {
    public static String api_end_point = 'URL';
    @future (callout=true)
    public static void afterUpdateContact(String contact_id){
        String post_body = '{"data": {"contactId":"' + contact_id + '"}}';
        Http http = new Http();
        HttpRequest request = new HttpRequest();
        request.setHeader('Content-Type', 'application/json;charset=UTF-8');
        HttpResponse response = http.send(request);
        if (response.getStatusCode() != 201)
            System.debug('The status code returned was not expected: ' + response.getStatusCode() + ' ' + response.getStatus());

Hello Tim,

To create the Test class for an Apex class that performs callout you have to create a Mock class which the sample response that you may receive when the actual callout happens.

Create the following test class.
private class contactUpdateTest{

    static void makeCalloutTest(){
        Test.setmock(HttpCalloutMock.class, new mockResponse());
        Contact ct = new Contact( FirstName='Test', LastName='Contact' );
        insert ct;

        ct.LastName = 'NewContact'; //Set the field value on which you call the update logic
        update ct;



And the following class is the mock class for the test class created above. You can change the Header and Response values accordingly.
global HTTPResponse mockResponse(HTTPRequest req) {
    HttpResponse res = new HttpResponse();
    res.setHeader('Content-Type', 'application/json');
    res.setBody('{"example": "test"}');
    return res;

Let me know if any problem occurs.
