Oracle is extending its API Management solution with a new product, API Catalog. This will give customers the ability to simplify the publication of API services that are developed in Oracle SOA Suite and other sources. Oracle API Catalog will be part of Oracle's broader API Management solution portfolio. Oracle API Catalog also integrates seamlessly with with Oracle Mobile Suite portfolio of products for mobile enablement. Oracle API Catalog harvests services in Oracle Fusion Middleware to allow one-click publish, submit ratings, or manage re-use across other consuming applications. Oracle's API Catalog is SOAP as well as REST/JSON compliant to easily support mobile mobile applications.
Here is a validation by one of our beta customers Peter Osborne, IT Technical Lead at LG&E and KU Services Company: "The Oracle API
Catalog is a straightforward, easy-to-use governance tool for capturing what
services exist, what these services do, and how they can be consumed. Within
hours of installation, an organization can begin cataloging their SOAP and REST
web services, regardless of the underlying service technology. The harvesting
functionality provides a jump start on aggregating service details, while
minimizing manual data entry and the risk of duplication and error. Finally,
the included JDeveloper plug-in completes the lifecycle by providing a
mechanism within JDeveloper to easily view and consume documented services."
