Designing Custom APIs for Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS) right from the Browser
One of the powerful and cool new features in Oracle Mobile Cloud Service is the hub for Custom APIs. From the architectural perspective Custom APIs are consisting of two parts: The „Design“ and „Implementation“ Part. In this post I am going to focus on the first part.
Within MCS it is possible to create the API interface right in the browser or by uploading a so called RAML document that describes the API resources. Having done this you can provide some sample data being able to test and implement against the newly created API.
Focus of this post is to show how to design an API right in MCS UI and test it.
How to do it
Goto Development > APIs
Click „New API"
If you have a RAML document at this point in time you can upload it to define the Resources for your API. If not it is possible to create it on the fly (as shown in this post).
Next: Click „Create“. It will take you to the „Designer“ View. You will see the general configuration of your Custom API. Read the complete article here.
