When it comes to API, REST is king. Its simplicity and pragmatism have seduced the greatest number of people. Even if the good practices and recommendations of Roy Fielding, its founder, are not always well implemented…
In 2012, FaceBook developped GraphQL which is an alternative API technology based on a query language and an execution engine. Since then, GraphQL has become Open Source and is now managed under the umbrella of the Linux foundation. This presentation will allow you to understand the characteristics of GraphQL and how it relates to REST: complement or replacement? Is it just for unicorn or open to enterprise applications?
It will also be the opportunity to showcase a concrete implementation with MicroProfile GraphQL.
So, ready to boost your APIs?
