API creation is more than providing a simple interface. That's only the tip of the iceberg. API Creator provides a fully functional application backend:
- API creation.Instant schema-based default APIs are complemented by point-and-click custom resources that provide projections, aliases, and joins across databases. Both default and custom APIs provide enterprise pattern automation, including optimistic locking, pagination, and generated key support.
- Logic.Powerful spreadsheet-like reactive logic enforces your business rules and systems integration in response to RESTful updates with a remarkable 40:1 improvement in conciseness. You can also specify data content security, securing data access down to the row and column levels based on users' roles.
- Bottom-up.Connect to an existing data source and create a set of default APIs, which you can then extend.
- Top-down.Create a schema using an application-centric approach using Data Explorer; Data Explorer becomes your integrated development environment (IDE). Data Explorer also creates an instant application interface for bottom-up APIs.
Whatever methodology you use, you can iterate quickly with immediate feedback from business users while continuing to refine application logic and develop custom client interfaces (applications).
