APIs and Microservices dominate the conversation when we talk about new application development. However, there seems to be a great deal of confusion between exactly what the difference is between the two. How do we decide which to use when integrating mainframe applications?
In this session, we will discuss:
- What is an API?
- What is a Microservice?
- What do they have to do with the mainframe?
- Best Practices for use in legacy integration
