Developers desire to rapidly integrate mobile applications, partners, and internal services. When using an Enterprise Service Bus, teams have rich mediation capabilities, but often encounter complex and time consuming integration projects. An API Façade Pattern extends ESB mediation capabilities, preserves existing ESB investment, and delivers a productive, self-service integration environment.

In this session, Asanka will describe how to properly implement the API Façade Pattern. He will explain:

  • Why separating mediation and security services from API improves architecture quality.
  • How a team may expose data services, business process services, application services, and ESB endpoints as business APIs and maintain architectural integrity.
  • When capacity planning decisions mandate specific deployment patterns.
