Backend-as-a-Service provider Espresso Logic has continued to build on its RESTful API services this week with the launch of the new Live Browser feature. The new service allows enterprise and business customers to first convert any database into an API, and then to create an application “in 30 seconds”. VP of Business Development, Ron Kaplan, talked to ProgrammableWeb about how the new service can be used to prototype and test an API design based on a company’s existing data assets.
There are plenty of tools for those that create and manage APIs. But when it comes to those that need to consume those APIs there are not so many. Looking to rectify that situation 3Scale, a provider of API management tools, launched a beta version of a free APItools service specifically designed to meet the needs of organizations that need to consume APIs.
