I am happy to announce that a new version of API Console is now available. It brings multiple changes and new tooling. Read more to learn what’s new in this release.
API Console is an application to automatically generates documentation for an API from a RAML or Open API definition. It is done by generating an AMF data model thanks to the AMF parser or the “webapi-parser” module.
It has been a year since we kicked off Training Talks, a blog series that focuses on insightful, how-to videos that address common MuleSoft use cases and FAQs received on the forum. We started out with a simple camera in one of our meeting rooms, with the goal to help developers get quick and simple answers to their questions.
File-sharing is one of the most elementary ways to perform system integration. In the context of web applications, we call “upload” the process in which a user sends data/files from a local computer to a remote computer.
When I was growing up, I loved playing the classic 1993 game DOOM. This is why recently, as part of a talk I gave at APIs and IPAs, I decided to do a demo of how I embedded a RESTful API into DOOM, allowing the game to be queried and controlled using HTTP and JSON.
I wrote the entire API specification for the project in RAML––a RESTful API Modeling Language based on YAML that allows you to create standardized,
In my role at MuleSoft, I advise federal agencies and commercial businesses in connecting their applications, data, and devices. Those conversations center around building modern Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to create new capabilities. A modern API is one that enables systems to exchange information securely using broadly adopted standards like REST and JSON.
These days there are APIs for nearly everything, like an API for your thermostat. I can change the temperature in my house from my phone or my smartwatch using an application that interacts with my thermostat’s API.
Over the past few months, I have been working with our Product and Engineering team on Crowd, the latest release of Anypoint Platform. The Crowd release consists of updates to Anypoint Exchange as well as the new Anypoint Designer Center in Anypoint Platform.
Today, APIs are an important part of how organizations conduct business––from internal APIs that streamline business processes to public APIs that generate revenue for organizations. The rising value of APIs raises the question: are APIs just another technology fad, shining brightly now, but soon to fade out of the spotlight?
I am excited to announce a new version of our open source API console. The 4.0 release comes with a completely new and responsive UI, improved capabilities for trying out your API, and additional tools to integrate automated builds into your CI/CD pipeline.
The API console can be run as a standalone web application or easily integrated into your own website, making it easy to incorporate into an existing developer portal with a fully branded layout.
Is it possible to have your cake and eat it too? In the world of API specs, we believe the answer is yes. We have been strong supporters of RAML, the RESTful API Modeling Language, since its inception, and we are if anything even more excited and committed about the value it brings to the API ecosystem.
The vast majority of RESTful APIs follow a simple “request-response” message exchange pattern, but that pattern is often too limiting and is not sufficient to achieving robust and reliable application performance. We frequently get questions from customers asking: ‘How I design asynchronous APIs?’ and ‘How I design an API that allows for the concurrent modification of the same API resource without bringing the resource into inconsistent state?’. In this blog post, we present two approaches answering these questions using standard HTTP headers and status codes.
