API Patterns - Aggregation


#1

Hi,
How can we achieve aggregation ( set of RAML APIs being called from one RAML API)? Does this really valid as an API deals with a resource, rather than a functionality. Correct me if I am wrong

Are you referring to a sort of uber RAML file that combines multiple RAML files into one like a tree structure?


#3

Its a kind of. BTW can we implement any API patterns using RAML , if so , could you share any sample?

Regards


#4

Which API patterns are you talking about? RAML is pretty straight forward. The docs on this site show how to build APIs very easily, and I have yet to find a tool that is easier to design an API with and read the .raml file to understand what the API is. Not sure what you are referring to API patterns though?


#5

May be I am being misguided by other API documentations from other sites stating about API patterns. I am aware that API deals with a resource and it is just an interface.
