In our previous piece, we discussed the strengths of the Java Language within the Spark framework, highlighting the ways Java Spark increases simplicity, encourages good design, and allows for ease of development.
If you are building APIs or microservices on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), you owe it to yourself to check out the micro-framework Spark. This tiny toolkit is designed after a similar Ruby framework called Sinatra, providing a library that makes it easy to create APIs and web sites. Read more
Perhaps the singular most important choice an API developer can make is one of programming language and architecture. Choosing how an API will communicate with consumers, how security will be implemented, and how the API will function with other services is largely constrained by the language and methodology by which it is developed.

When you start a new API project, one of the first questions to answer is what programming language to use. Picking the right one can make all the difference. Some languages help solve certain problems while others inhibit solutions. Even after a language is chosen and tens-of-thousands of lines of code have been written, there is the possibility of reducing complexity by using new languages on the same runtime. Read more
