Amazon API Gateway now features content encoding support for API responses. Content encoding helps reduce the amount of data sent from the API Gateway to clients, and transferring data takes less time. Developers can configure their APIs to support content encodings such as deflate and gzip.

Many software testers get by with a small toolset but testing an API requires expanding on that. New tools emerge and others go out of fashion every day, but at least we can make a list of what is relevant right now. Here are some suggestions to help your process of choosing an API testing tool.
This is the final part of our API Testing series. In this article we will talk about what's coming up in the near future that will change how we test and deliver new APIs. Included are looks at the possible effects of newer architectural styles such as GraphQL and gRPC, and new tooling.
How to Create a Quick and Dirty Example of The Proposed Standard for In-Band API Service Warnings API University
As a best practice, API providers often go to a lot of trouble to notify developers of upcoming disruptions or changes to their APIs. All of this happens out-of-band like in a ChangeLog or an email. But how about the idea of in-band notifications, especially when developers are impossible to reach?
Axway has announced changes to its AMPLIFY platform which include modifications to API management, application development, file transfer, and analytics capabilities. New Hyperloop technology has also been added to the Titanium SDK.
In this part of the API Testing Series, we review a tool called API Fortress that is billed as both a test tool and an API health tool, implying a focus on reliability and monitoring in production. Here's a closer look at API Fortress, its feature set, who might use it, and the current price models.
This part of the API Testing Series looks at API Metrics, an API monitoring tool. API Metrics has two main functions: API monitoring, for taking the pulse of your API product and user experience; and SLA measurement to monitor the performance of third-party APIs that integrate with your product.
When Yahoo! shut off a stock quote service that developers were relying on -- albeit anonymously -- developers erupted with disappointment and anger. But those developers were probably trespassing on the service and Yahoo! had no way to notify them of the shutdown. Maybe a standard can fix that.
Readme.io, a service that greatly simplifies the process of documenting technologies like APIs, is taking its popularity with API providers to the next level in a new offering called Build. Working off that tradition of simplicity, Build simplifies the design, provisioning and consumption of APIs.
Deciding what metrics matter depends on the overall strategy goals and business model that aligns with your APIs. This is why defining the business model was one of the first steps in your decision series. Now we need to make sure our evaluation framework matches back up to what we set out to do.
