Salesforce Schedulable Apex Test Class

Batch Class:

global class AccountBatch implements Database.Batchable<sObject> {
    global Database.QueryLocator start(Database.BatchableContext BC){
        String query = 'SELECT Id, Name, Industry FROM Account';                
        return Database.getQueryLocator(query);     
    global void execute(Database.BatchableContext BC, List<Account> accList){        
        for(Account acc : accList){          
            acc.Industry = 'Banking';        
        update accList;       
    global void finish(Database.BatchableContext BC) {

Schedulable Class:

global class AccountBatchScheduled implements Schedulable {
    global void execute(SchedulableContext sc) {
        AccountBatch objBatch = new AccountBatch(); 

Test Class:

private class AccountBatchScheduledTest{
    static testmethod void schedulerTest(){
        String cronexpression = '0 0 0 15 3 ? *';

        Account acc = new Account();
        acc.Name = 'Test Account';
        Insert acc;
        String jobId = System.schedule('ScheduleBatchApexClass',  cronexpression, new AccountBatchScheduled());
        CronTrigger ct = [SELECT Id, CronExpression, TimesTriggered, NextFireTime FROM CronTrigger WHERE id = :jobId];
        System.assertEquals(cronexpression, ct.CronExpression);
        System.assertEquals(0, ct.TimesTriggered);

Batch Apex With Webservice Callout

To make a Webservice callout in batch Apex, we have to implement Database.AllowsCallouts interface in the class definition. Here is an example to make webservice callout in batch apex.

Batch Apex:

global class AccountBatchApex implements Database.Batchable<sObject>, Database.AllowsCallouts{
    global Database.QueryLocator start(Database.BatchableContext bc){
        String soqlQuery = 'SELECT Name, AccountNumber, Type From Account';
        return Database.getQueryLocator(soqlQuery);
    global void execute(Database.BatchableContext bc, List<Account> scope){
        for (Account acc : scope){
            if(acc.Type.equals('Customer - Direct')){
                    HttpRequest request = new HttpRequest();
                    HttpResponse response = new HttpResponse();
                    Http http = new Http();
                    String username = 'YourUsername';
                    String password = 'YourPassword';
                    Blob headerValue = Blob.valueOf(username + ':' + password);
                    String authorizationHeader = 'BASIC ' + EncodingUtil.base64Encode(headerValue);
                    request.setHeader('Authorization', authorizationHeader);
                    request.setHeader('Content-Type', 'application/json');
                    request.setEndpoint('Your Endpoint URL');
                    request.setBody('Information to Send');
                    response = http.send(request);
                    if (response.getStatusCode() == 200) {
                        String jsonResponse = response.getBody();
                        System.debug('Response-' + jsonResponse);
                    System.debug('Error-' + e.getMessage());   
    global void finish(Database.BatchableContext bc){

Note: Total number of callouts (HTTP requests or Web services calls) is 100, that means if you have one callout in your execute method you can keep batch size as 100.
