I am confuse about APIS. May i know the types of API'S and its difference.
There are four main types of APIs:
1. Open APIs: Also known as Public API, there are no restrictions to access these types of APIs because they are publicly available.
2. Partner APIs: A developer needs specific rights or licenses in order to access this type of API because they are not available to the public.
3. Internal APIs: Also known as Private APIs, only internal systems expose this type of API. These are usually designed for internal use within a company. The company uses this type of API among the different internal teams to be able to improve its products and services.
4. Composite APIs: This type of API combines different data and service APIs. It is a sequence of tasks that run synchronously as a result of the execution, and not at the request of a task. Its main uses are to speed up the process of execution and improve the performance of the listeners in the web interfaces.
