Deep-dive into APIs in a Microservice Architecture

Wednesday, September 19, 2018
Webinar Slides

When an API gateway enforces API governance policies, it connects with several other API management components. But there are cases where the API runtime traffic needs to be isolated from the API management traffic. For that, WSO2 has introduced WSO2 API Microgateway.

API Microgateway is a lightweight message processor for APIs which supports authentication, authorization, throttling, and analytics. API microgateway goes well with microservice architecture due to its lower startup time, lower resource consumption and the native support for container-based deployments. The API microgateway can be run in a fully controlled environment using a selected set of APIs.

During the webinar, the following areas will be covered:

  • Setting up a microgateway project using the in-built CLI tool of the WSO2 API Microgateway
  • Building and running a microgateway using the created project
  • Running the API Microgateway on a container orchestration platform (Docker & K8s environments)
