Beyond REST API’s – An overview about modern API technologies

Lars Duelfer - Novatec Consulting

REST is the most popular web API technology used these days. It is well supported by programming languages, frameworks and all kind of monitoring tools as well as understood by many developers. It is therefore often the first choice when having to implement a web API for any kind of backend. But there are limitations and use cases where REST API’s do not fit that well. Luckily, there are a few interesting alternatives available these days. GraphQL is one such alternative so are gRPC and RSocket. In this talk I will introduce these technologies, explain their pros and cons compared to REST, talk about their maturity and how they are supported by Spring and Spring Boot. I will show code examples and a live demo.
