API services make building trading partner connections EASY

JSON Standard Development

JSON Standard

  • Quickly distinguish between single items and collections of size one (think “batch”)
  • Easier to handle with JavaScript if you need something for a web application
  • Lightweight in comparison to XML
  • More structural information in the document

RESTful Protocol Dev

RESTful Protocol

  • Simple, with fewer rules than SOAP-based APIs to make them discoverable
  • Adopts all well-understood mechanisms of HTTP
  • Object-centric, not message- centric, thereby focused on the data in your application
  • SOAP requires XML, whereas REST most often implements with JSON––which is the native data format for JavaScript

Simplified Structure

Simplified Structure

  • Automated data submission and retrieval
  • Error handling visibility and logging for enhanced debug capabilities
  • Streamlined security implementation leveraging OAuth security model
  • See network-related transactions which appear along with any other data monitoring streams
