Application Programming Interface (API)

Posted by on Jul 13, 2014 in | 0 comments

API (application program interface) is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications. A good API makes it easier to develop a program by providing all the building blocks dictated by functional requirements. A programmer then puts these blocks together. The API allows programmers to use predefined functions to interact with a service or an application.
