As mobile usage increases, users could benefit from the possibility to interact with the API from a single portable device. What the API does is to read data in XML and JSON while REST displays LinkedIn's contacts, companies, and employment.

By any measure developers of mobile computing applications are having a tough time making a living. For the most part they have to give their applications away for either free or a nominal fee.

The API maturity cycle within the enterprise is evolving at two or three times the speed of previous software oriented architecture (SOA) cycles, creating an urgent need for tools that ensure new business integrations built with APIs are managed with respect to governance and industry regulatory requirements. To keep up with this pace, SOA Software has today released the Lifecycle API. This new API is part of the company's Lifecycle Manager product that supports enterprises with flexible approaches to governing IT and business activities and processes.
