When we want to create a new Custom API, we have to define the each of the endpoints and, if we want to consume them from Oracle MAX, we have to define the schemas and then add some mock data. Since version 16.4.1 (v3.0), there is a new feature, Express API, where we can create the resources and the schemas easily and declaratively.
I have to say that we can still create the APIs in the old way. But if we want to use Express API, we just have to select that option when creating an API.
The creation popup is the same as in previous versions.
But the API page is different. We no longer see endpoints, schema, security, types and traits menus, and instead of those we have resources menu option.
After creating a resource, we can see 4 tabs.
In the first one we can change the configuration of the resource and we can also define child and parent relationships between resources. Read the complete article here.
