Humboldt DATE: April 24, 2015 TIME: 10:50 am - 12:30 pm I know Philipp has a great presentation lined up, and the format of the event ensures a lot of great discussion.

Accenture and Bristol Myers Squibb speaking about APIs at Axway Innovation Forum - Philadelphia May 5

On May 5 in Philadephia, Axway is running an "Innovation Forum" focusing on integration technologies including APIs. It's a free event which you can sign up for online, and we've some great speakers lined up. I'll be down in Philly for the event, and I'm really looking forward to it. So what is an Innovation Forum? It's a way to get practitioners together to share best practices, network, and discuss the latest technologies. Expect to hear much discussion on microservices, on the latest API security breaches (and how to avoid them), and on Internet of Things. On the API front, we h... (more)

The Axway API Gateway solution enables customers who are logged on to the Storebrand site to di... (more)

Value of an "Echo" API Endpoint

This morning I was looking at the (excellent) API documentation of one of Axway's API Management customers, and I thought I'd write a quick blog post about a simple and sometimes under-used Best Practice. In this case, the Best Practice is to include an "echo" operation. This makes it easy to test the API (along with the in place testing, which you also see with the "Try it out" button). It's simple to setup an "echo" endpoint using Axway's API Management (just drag in a "Reflect" onto the canvas, it's as simple as that). ... (more)
