Interface Programming (API Programming)
API (Application Programming Interface), also calledinterface programming, enables the unified and structured data transfer between web applications.
What is Interface programming?
Many webservices and websites offer interfaces to enable the integration of different data on a website. For example, features of social networks like Facebook, Twitter or Youtube can be used. Also the connection of banks, hotels, payment service providers, intelligence services or Google Maps is an interesting usage possibility.
Many software products offer in addition, the possibility of import and export functions. That enables the exchange of data between different software. The programming and developing of these additional programs for the communication of software products among themselves, is called interface programming.
This is, for example, very interesting in programming of business software or ERP systems (enterprise resource planning). Whether it is about the integration of various software or database integration … there are many options when it comes to simplifying and optimizing daily business processes through the use of interfaces.
