Through web services APIs, Apperian provides customers and partners with the ability to integrate EASE with existing IT solutions, as well as extend new capabilities on top of the platform.
Most of Apperian's web services are "RESTful," which means they are based on a REST (Representation State Transfer) architecture. REST is used to build web services that are lightweight, maintainable, and scalable. REST APIs use standard HTTP methods (GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE) to retrieve, submit, change, and delete data. To ensure data privacy, Apperian's REST APIs are served over HTTPS; unencrypted HTTP is not supported. The APIs used to publish (add and update) applications to EASE are based on a JSON-RPC architecture. JSON-RPC is a remote procedure call protocol encoded in JSON.
