Api kit router, api console? In Melesoft 03

 Api kit router, api console? In Melesoft 

In MuleSoft 4, APIkit lcontinues to play a role in simplifying API development, especialy for REST APIs. However, some terminology changes and updates have been implemented. Here's a breakdown of what you need to know about APIkit router and API console in MuleSoft 4:

APIkit Router:

  • While the term "APIkit router" is no longer explicitly used in official documentation, the functionality it represented still exists.

  • In Mule 4, API routing is handled by the rest-router component within the api-kit-for-rest module.

  • This component automatically handles routing incoming requests to appropriate backend flows based on the API specification (RAML or OpenAPI).

  • You don't need to configure manual routing logic separately as APIkit does the routing based on the defined API contract.

API Console:

  • The functionality of the API console remains similar in Mule 4.

  • The console is now known as the OpenAPI Explorer or RAML Explorer depending on the API specification used (OpenAPI or RAML).

  • You can still access the console by running your APIkit project and appending /console to the base URL of your API.

  • The console provides features like interactive documentation, request/response testing, and API resource visualization.

Additional Information:

  • While APIkit continues to be usable in Mule 4, newer tools like FlowJoiner are also available for creating complex data flows.

  • The official documentation for APIkit in Mule 4 has moved to this location: [invalid URL removed]

  • You can find more information about the rest-router component here: [invalid URL removed]

  • For the OpenAPI Explorer, refer to: [invalid URL removed]

  • And for the RAML Explorer, check this out: [invalid URL removed]

I hope this clarifies the concept of APIkit router and API console in the context of MuleSoft 4. Feel free to ask if you have any further questions!
