One-Day Workshop Offers IT Professionals Real-World Best Practices for Exposing Heterogeneous Back-end Services as RESTful APIs Using the WSO2 Platform Palo Alto, CA – January 9, 2012 – Effective business-to-business communications rely on application programming interfaces (APIs) to connect companies’ disparate systems. However, many enterprises struggle to expose RESTful APIs, and ultimately they spend more time and effort architecting workaround solutions. WSO2 will provide IT architects and developers insights into identifying and addressing the challenges around Restful APIs in a dynamic one-day workshop, “Creating RESTful APIs: Using the WSO2 Platform.”

- API Architecture: a look at how to design a RESTful API using basic REST methods to meet a specific business requirement and how to enhance the API using techniques such as HyperMedia.
- API Gateway Pattern Using WSO2 ESB: covering how to expose back-end services as a RESTful API using the WSO2 ESB, and how to secure an API using security protocols such as HTTP basic authentication or Open Authorization (OAuth).
- Writing REST Services: examining how to publish RESTful APIs by writing services with a REST binding using the JAX-RS Java API for RESTful Web services, along with how WSO2 Application Server can be used to host JAX-RS.
- RESTful Data Access: demonstrating how WSO2 Data Services Server enables architects to expose data entities as resources and perform create, read, update and delete (CRUD) operations using REST methods.
- Beyond the APIs: How can architects take APIs to the enterprise which business users can leverage for better ROI? This session will discuss a few enterprise API patterns including YBaaS (Your Business as a Service). Cloud provides a better infrastructure for API hosting with Cloud features like multi-tenancy, billing and metering offering better control over the APIs. Overall, this pattern covers how vertical PaaS takes business APIs into the enterprise.
