Develop Apache Server Application Programming Interface Applications - Cloud - Author-it

Development Documentation

The Apache Server Application Programming Interface is a set of web services that enable you to work with a library from an application that is outside of the Author-it platform. Before working with the Server Application Programming Server please see Choose the Author-it Development Technology You Will Use to make sure you are using the right Author-it development technology for your scenarios.

Before you begin Server Application Programming Server development you must first configure your development environment. You will need the following.

  • API Server Internet Information Services installed and configured

    Note: We recommend that you use the API Server Internet Information Services when you develop applications that use the Server Application Programming Server. This is the implementation of the Server Application Programming Server that we configure in Author-it Cloud.

  • An IDE that supports connecting to web services.

    Note: All the examples and documentation in the Author-it SDK use Visual Studio or Visual Studio Express.

When you implement code that uses the Apache Server Application Programming Interface there are things that you must do in order for your code to work as expected, such as managing state and setting endpoints.
