Sonoa Systems, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise API management solutions, has enhanced its free API lifecycle platform for developers to build applications to the Twitter API. Sonoa’s Apigee now provides tools to learn the Twitter API, debug apps against it and monitor apps that use it.
New features of Apigee include the following:
• API Testing: Use the API Console to review the Twitter API’s structure, experiment with the API, review the request and response messages and share them with other developers - includes support for OAuth and HTTP Basic.
• API Debugging: Use the API Debugger to record messages you send to any API, review requests and responses, and dig into errors. Any developer can use the Debugger for any API.
• API Analytics: Use API Analytics to review usage levels, geo-location of requests, overall performance, which developers and apps are using your API the most, and core API performance metrics like response time, and including Tweets and Retweets for calls to the Twitter API.
• API Protection: API providers can use API Request Quotas to protect your back-end from surges in traffic and from accidental (or intentional) abuse of your API, available for up to 50,000 requests per hour.
Apigee is provided free to the API community, and is built on ServiceNet, Sonoa’s industrial-strength cloud service and API infrastructure. Developers can sign up at www.apigee.com.
