(English) More on JSON and REST API Specifications

Leider ist der Eintrag nur auf Britisches Englisch verfügbar.Expanding on my previous posts about annotating and validating JSON data structure with JSON Schema defining and documenting REST APIs using Swagger I have two additional suggestions for tools that help you define and build HTTP-based APIs in a less haphazard, more deliberate manner: JSON API: While JSON Schema allows you to annotate and validate JSON-based data types JSON API gives you clear, opinionated guidelines for structuring JSON API responses so you don't have think about those ...

(English) JHipster: Generate And Bootstrap CRUD Apps With Spring Boot And Angular

Leider ist der Eintrag nur auf Britisches Englisch verfügbar.The previous two posts in my series on helpful tools for developing CRUD applications were about tools that addressed very specific problem areas: API format specifications and code generation from those specifications in particular. This post will be both less about APIs and solving specific CRUD-related problems but about a tool that deals with CRUD app requirements in a comprehensive manner. This tool I'm talking about is called - not so slightly tongue-in-cheek - ... Read more

(English) Swagger: A Roundtrip Tool For Creating And Consuming REST APIs

Say, for example you have a product instance like this (converted from your language's native object or general data structure format using a tool like Jackson for ... Read more

(English) Why Do We Still Write CRUD Applications?

Leider ist der Eintrag nur auf Britisches Englisch verfügbar.Probably every software developer - since the 1990s at least - has been there once, asking him- or herself: "Why do I have to write tedious, repetitive CRUD code time and time again?" Being good, virtuous programmers some of those developers did what software development in the end mostly is about: They tried to automate a cumbersome, repetitive process that like any repetitive process should be performed by machines rather than humans. Some have ... Read more
