Hall A



For many years, REST has been a de-facto industry standard architectural style for designing web APIs. However, GraphQL and gRPC have recently emerged to address some of the limitations of REST. Each of these API approaches comes with substantial benefits and some trade-offs.In this presentation, we'll look at each of the three API architectural styles. We’ll compare them and check their pros and cons. Then, we’ll do a live demo and build a simple service using all three API approaches in Spring Boot.Finally, we'll look into several criteria that should be considered before deciding on one approach for your application. As there’s no one-size-fits-all approach, we'll see how different approaches can be mixed on different application layers.
