Hi guys, just want to talk about how valuable apis have become in modern programming. APIs are everywhere in one form or another from programming language libraries to hosted services. I personally think that programming will be very difficult without apis. Its the best thing since sliced bread in my opinion. Can u imagine what programming would be like without apis.

I think soap still has its nitch. In general i would prefer soap if I need to pass around a lot of text since XML excels at wrapping and making up text. But when passing around small data objects, i would tend to use json as it is smaller, easier to parse and more readable

i believe json does it better. it's lighter and more easier to use right away, requiring less codes.
