Implementing Oracle API Platform Cloud Service

By: Andrew Bell, Sander Rensen, Luis Weir, Phil Wilkins

Overview of this book

Implementing Oracle API Platform Cloud Service moves from theory to practice using the newest Oracle API management platform. This critical new platform for Oracle developers allows you to interface the complex array of services your clients expect in the modern world. First, you'll learn about Oracle’s new platform and get an overview of it, then you'll see a use case showing the functionality and use of this new platform for Oracle customers. Next, you’ll see the power of Apiary and begin designing your own APIs. From there, you’ll build and run microservices and set up the Oracle API gateways. Moving on, you’ll discover how to customize the developer portal and publish your own APIs. You’ll spend time looking at configuration management on the new platform, and implementing the Oauth 2.0 policy, as well as custom policies. The latest finance modules from Oracle will be examined, with some of the third party alternatives in sight as well. This broad-scoped book completes your journey with a clear examination of how to transition APIs from Oracle API Management 12c to the new Oracle API Platform, so that you can step into the future confidently.

In this chapter, the design decisions involved in how the API platform were implemented. The makeup of the different parts of the solution have been examined, both in the cloud layer and the gateway.

This has included exploring the pros and cons of different options and the possible constraints. This has extended to considering aspects of the infrastructure around the gateway such as load balancing and firewalls. With these considerations, the approach has been outlined for our use case—MRA.

The setup of the cloud elements of the solution and the configuration of users and their roles have been walked through. From there the design considerations of the engine of the API platform, the gateway nodes (or just gateways) were explored.

The configuration parameters and various deployment configurations, such has handling web proxies, have been described. A standard configuration...
