Going further on the feature overview of CUBA Platforms capabilities, i’ll will go through the next topic, which is quite important these days: APIs. CUBA has a build-in feature, called REST API. We’ll have a look at what this means and how to interact with it. After this overview, we’ll have a look about what alternatives we have, if this generic API is not suitable for our needs.
Last time, i wrote about the generic filter possibilities that CUBA provides out of the box. I left off with two requirements as a developer, that are necessary to be confident that the generic solution does not fall down with real world problems.
As was promised last time, I’m going to run through some features of the platform, which I think are very valuable. I’m going to write a series of sub-articles here, starting with the elementary aspects, such as UI, filtering, security for some advanced parts like web portal, extensibility, audit, dynamic attributes and so on.
In this blog post i’d like to lay out how i came to the CUBA platform and what the benefits of this tool are. I’ll dig a little into the different phases on my young “business application development” history, just to give you a little context. So let’s start with how i came to the typical CRUD applications to help non-tech people to be a little more productive.
