New Delhi, March18 2020: Liferay has announced their entrance into the OpenAPI Initiative (OAI), an open governance structure under the auspices of the Linux Foundation.
The goal of OAI is to create a vendor-neutral, standardized structure for how APIs are created (with the ultimate goal being to increase API adoption). By joining OAI, Liferay announced, the platform is “committing to modeling our APIs on the OpenAPI standard”.
Liferay has placed special emphasis on delivering powerful APIs based on the OpenAPI specification as a way to better address their customers’ specific needs and be able to better provide tools to customers to build their own APIs.
“Liferay is proud to join the OpenAPI Initiative,” said Michael Han, Chief Technology Officer at Liferay, Inc. “Open source and open ecosystems are a core part of who we are, and we appreciate the opportunity to work with the community to drive API standardization and adoption. Adopting the OpenAPI Specification also helps Liferay customers get to business value faster by allowing their developers to use an industry standard structure to access Liferay headless services.”
