The exploding complexity of backend interfaces is a real problem for companies building mobile and web applications or just using REST API services. The engineering team at DreamFactory designed and built some of the very first applications that use web services. Over the years, we’ve learned that many companies face the same challenges we had to think about and tackle. One of the biggest challenges is figuring out a winning API strategy.This white paper is designed to provide architecture information about the DreamFactory instance. It covers the different components and characteristics of the system and an anatomy of various API calls as they travel through the system.
