Introduction
Antonio Gámez Díaz, PhD in Software Engineering who shifted to the "dark side" of the industry (VMware) after a period as an FPU predoctoral researcher and lecturer at the University of Seville (2015-2020). His research interests focus on Service-Oriented Computing and specifically on the governance of RESTful systems using SLAs. He has participated in several projects and has collaborated with organizations such as the OpenAPI Initiative or GitHub Education.

As APIs are becoming popular to build Service-Based Applications (SBA), API Gateways are being increasingly used to facilitate API features management. They offer API management functionalities such as pricing plans support, user authentication, API versioning or response caching. Some parts of the information that an API Gateway needs are already...

As software architecture design is evolving to a microservice paradigm, RESTful APIs are being established as the preferred choice to build applications. In such a scenario, there is a shift towards a growing market of APIs where providers offer different service levels with tailored limitations typically based on the cost. In this context, while t...

Article
Contribution: This article presents an experience report on the application of flipped classroom (FC) to the laboratory sessions (henceforth lab sessions) of an undergraduate computer science course. Background: Hands-on work in computer science lab sessions is typically preceded by technical instructions on how to install, configure, and use the s...
Article
This paper reports our experience in flipping a second-year undergraduate course on software architecture and integration, taught in the second course of a Software Engineering degree. We compare the application of the flipped-classroom methodology with a traditional methodology. Our study encompasses two academic courses, in the years 2017 and 201...
Chapter
Full-text available
The OpenAPI Specification (OAS) is the de facto standard to describe RESTful APIs from a functional perspective. OAS has been a success due to its simple model and the wide ecosystem of tools supporting the SLA-Driven API development lifecycle. Unfortunately, the current OAS scope ignores crucial information for an API such as its Service Level Agr...

En este artículo describimos nuestra experiencia al aplicar la metodología de clase invertida en la asignatura Arquitectura e Integración de Sistemas Software, de segundo curso del grado de Ingeniería del Software. Varios aspectos caracterizan este estudio frente a los trabajos relacionados. En primer lugar, la metodología fue aplicada en las clase...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
As software architecture design is evolving to microservice paradigms, RESTful APIs become the building blocks of applications. In such a scenario, a growing market of APIs is proliferating and developers face the challenges to take advantage of this reality. For example, third-party APIs typically define different usage limitations depending on th...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Software architecture tendencies are shifting to a microservice paradigm. In this context, RESTful APIs are being established the standard of integration. API designer often identifies two key issues to be competitive in such a growing market. On the one hand, the generation of accurate documentation of the behavior and capabilities of the API to p...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Sofware distribution models are moving to SaaS paradigms where customers no longer need to buy a perpetual license. In this context, SaaS providers leverage the Service Level Agreement (SLA) concept to delimit the functionality and guarantees to which they commit to their customers. However, although formal specifications for the definition of SLAs...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
As distribution models of information systems are moving to XaaS paradigms, microservices architectures are rapidly emerging, having the RESTful principles as the API model of choice. In this context, the term of API Economy is being used to describe the increasing movement of the industries in order to take advantage of exposing their APIs as part...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The term of API Economy is becoming increasingly used to describe the change of vision in how APIs can add value to the organizations. Furthermore, a greater automation of RESTful APIs management can suppose a competitive advantage for the company. New proposals are emerging in order to automatize some API governance tasks and increase the ease of...
