Supported Web Services & APIs

QiSoftware provides extensive support to those requiring Web Services or API integration on their sites.

Web Services definition provided by Webopedia:
The term Web services describes a standardized way of integrating Web-based applications using the XML, SOAP, WSDL and UDDI open standards over an Internet protocol backbone. XML is used to tag the data, SOAP is used to transfer the data, WSDL is used for describing the services available and UDDI is used for listing what services are available...

Popular users of web services include:

  • Amazon
  • PayPal
  • ebay

API definition provided by Webopedia:

API, an abbreviation of application program interface, is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications...

Well known API sites include:

  • Mashery {API Development & Management Provider}
  • ProgrammableWeb {Reference}
  • APIFinder {Reference}

Web Services and APIs that QiSoftware currently supports-- include the following [links are online demonstrations or discussions]:

Web Services [Have Access-- Supported]

  • EBay
  • Google Adsense
  • AgentRank
  • BestBuy {Mashery}
  • Freelancer
  • Groupon
  • Meetup
  • PayPal OnSite Cart
  • Yelp

The TemplateMonster API integration listed above, is not a Java J2EE offering. The rest are.

This support is mainly within the Java J2EE realm. Access to MySQL databases is also supported through JDBC. Though I do not like offering PHP services, especially where ecommerce is concerned-- QiSoftware also supports this scripting language within the realm of API and web services integration.

Server side Java is quick and more secure than scripts. As a matter of fact-- server side Java is so quick-- I have to find work arounds to ensure some of the API providers do not return errors believing limits have been exceeded.. This is an easy fix.
