What are Different Ways of API?
There are four different ways that APIs can work depending on when and why they were created.
a) SOAP APIs: These APIs use Simple Object Access Protocol. Client and server exchange messages using XML. This is a less flexible API that was more popular in the past.
b) REST APIs: Representational State Transfer These are the most popular and flexible APIs found on the web today. The client sends requests to the server as data. The server uses this client input to start internal functions and returns output data back to the client.
c) RPC APIs: These APIs are called Remote Procedure Calls. The client completes a function (or procedure) on the server, and the server sends the output back to the client.
d) WebSocket APIs: WebSocket API is another modern web API development that uses JSON objects to pass data. A WebSocket API supports two-way communication between client apps and the server. The server can send callback messages to connected clients, making it more efficient than REST API.
What is Publish in Informatica Cloud IICS -IDMC?
Before you run a taskflow as an API or schedule a taskflow, you must first publish the taskflow as a service. When you publish a taskflow, Data Integration generates the service (REST) URL and the SOAP service URL. You can use these endpoint URLs to run the taskflow as an API.
When you run a taskflow from the taskflow designer, Data Integration automatically publishes the taskflow, and generates the service (REST) URL and SOAP service URL.
