Re: API Glue
@Wisco: Exactly and those components should get updated on a constant basis too. If not the components will die and will be of no use in the longer run.

Re: API Glue
Having more Web-based API  portals that you can pick and choose from is helping some companies  with their ERP integrations with external business processes.

Re: APIs: Why & How to Manage Them
Good point, Wisco. I prefer open source for the same reason. Also, if you're already working together as a team, then why not opt to work together in a more open environment and share the workload? Seems like the smarter and more efficient thing to do, egos aside.

Re: APIs: Why & How to Manage Them
Yes, I think you are right, @RaviN. The REST interface has taken over. It's less complex and easier to implement and it does much of what needs to be done, so it really took off. I have heard of OAuth, but am not so familiar with it.

Re: APIs: Why & How to Manage Them
The only optional constraint of REST architecture is "code on demand". One can characterise applications conforming to the REST constraints described in this section as restful.

Re: APIs: Why & How to Manage Them
Most of the web-services have shifted to RESTful API's. However, most need OAuth-based authentication. Due to the need for authentication, they can limit (and they often do) the number of API-queries thus limiting the impact on their web-services.

@John: Good point John. Many think the API is damaged or corrupted but the truth is that the service behind is slow.

Re: APIs: Why & How to Manage Them
I wonder how SAP and Oracle have done with web services, which both of them pushed quite aggressively a few years ago. I believe much of this kind of activity has shifted to REST-ful interfaces and APIs, not SOAP, etc.

API management is a big business, especially when you see Intel and IBM buying their way into the market. Netflix is the poster boy, having leverage its API to conquer the world for video streaming.

Re: API Glue
If we can summarize i guess more generally, one can see the API as the collection of all the kinds of objects or else we can derive from the class definitions, and their associated possible behaviors, further this makes simple for me to understand and learn how& why to manage.
