Web API

Web API

A web API is the application programming interface (API) for both the web server and web browser. A server-side web API is a programmatic interface to a clear appeal-answer message system, normally expressed in JSON or XML, which is wide-open via the web—most frequently by means of an HTTP-based web server. A client-side web API is a programmatic interface to extend functionality within a web browser or other HTTP client. Originally these were most commonly in the form of native plug-in architectures. However most newer ones target standardized JavaScript bindings.

 

The usage of API grew by leaps and bounds in the last decade. ABC team has exploited the usage of Web APIs to create competitive Software Applications. Our team has the right skills and expertise to achieve the desired results.
