Apigee, a leading API technology provider for enterprises and developers, has announced the integration of Node.js with the Apigee API Platform which allows developers to build highly customized APIs and Apps. The addition of Node.js support makes it possible for developers to deploy unmodified Node.js applications on the platform then add to those applications API management features such as OAuth security, API keys, traffic management, caching, rate-limiting, etc.
In addition, there are many thousands of Node.js third-party modules created by the Node.js community that are already available and can be used by developers via the Apigee API Platform. Although the platform does support third-party Node modules, third-party software is not hosted in the Apigee Cloud therefore software solutions can only be used if they are accessible remotely over HTTP or HTTPS. Apigee Chief Architect, Greg Brail states for the press release that:
The Apigee API Platform with Node.js support is available now as a public beta version and more information about the platform can be found on the official Apigee website.
