Application logic often needs to be provided flexibly in the form of a callable API. Although it is quite easy to create an API using technologies such as Web API, functions for authentication, calling, etc. often require effort to implement. API Apps make it much easier to provide these accompanying functions. When implementing clients that are to use an API App, metainformation (call parameters, return values, authentication requirements, etc.) can be imported using a Swagger-based description and the code for the calls can be automatically generated. This lets developers focus completely on the application logic and use objects from their respective programming language.
