CA's API Management Update Includes Support for Docker

CA Technologies (CA) has added new capabilities to its API management portfolio in an effort to increase development speed.

This release of CA Live API Creator hopes to make API and application backend creation simpler for developers and easier for business users to directly engage in the process. By eliminating the need for database expertise and incorporating an interactive and graphical interface, CA Live API Creator allows individuals outside the normal development process, such as business managers, to directly participate in application creation. It give users the opportunity to take an application idea and visualize it themselves instead of bringing in a whole development squad at the outset.

Accelerating Development for Modern Application Architectures

CA Technologies also released updates to its API Gateway and Mobile App Services products with new capabilities to enhance developer productivity. New functionality includes:

  • CA API Gateway support for Docker® containers to provide developers with the agility, control and portability for faster development.
  • Open-source access to CA Mobile App Services components, such as software development kits, on GitHub to boost developer adoption and convenience.
  • CA Mobile API Gateway support for the Android™ Platform and multi-factor Authentication for developers accessing APIs.
