How to monitor Salesforce

One of my favorite Web APIs to use in demos is SalesForce.com . SalesForce has a ton of information about their API on their developer site. The Vordel API Sever can be used to connect up to SalesForce, including sending up the API Key and caching the Session Identifier which is returned back by SalesForce.

One of the neat things is that all traffic from the app to the SalesForce API is now monitored by the Vordel API Server. There are many advantages to this, which I will delve deeper into in later posts. But, one key advantage is that "rogue cloud service usage" is stamped out, since it appears on the Real-Time Monitoring of the Gateway:






How to convert from REST to SOAP

The popular advantages of REST over SOAP are well known: It's easier to write a REST client, the messages are smaller, you can cache REST traffic using standard Web infrastructure. But what if you have SOAP Web Services and your clients are crying out for REST Web Services instead?

How to convert XML to JSON

JSON is a very popular choice for transmitting data on the wire, especially since it is widely used for Apple iPhone app development. The usage of JSON allows a developer to skip the step in the browser where incoming XML must be parsed and read into an object. Instead, a serialized JavaScript object is sent, often including the data it needs already. So, no need for XML. But, in order to create this JSON structure in the first place, it is a good idea to offload this task onto an appliance such as an XML Gateway. The XML Gateway then serves up the JSON (to an iPhone for example), dynamically converting it from the source XML.






How to throttle API traffic

Here's a guide to setting up throttling in the Vordel Gateway:

If you've already registered a WSDL, skip forward to step 4.

Vordel API Server improves SharePoint Gateway security, accessibility and user experience across the enterprise
Microsoft SharePoint is a very popular enterprise collaboration platform. SharePoint is just so easy to deploy that each department is quick to stand up its own SharePoint site. These sprawling SharePoint sites are often managed locally and consequently fail to conform to IT policies and standards. This creates challenges for IT in the areas of security, performance and accessibility. Vordel API Server offers a SharePoint Gateway solution to help enterprises make their SharePoint deployments more secure, more accessible and deliver a better user experience.
