Application Programming Interface Technical Specification (API TechSpec)
Project PurposeMultiple groups within UN/CEFACT wish to develop standard Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) as part of the set of technical deliverables from their project. The RDM2API project demonstrated that it is possible to go from the semantics of UN/CEFACT towards APIs. This project aims to develop a technical specification in order to move from Reference Data Model (RDM) based deliverables to a standardized API which retains the richness of information available in RDMs.
Project ScopeDevelop a technical specification which will standardize API production for UN/CEFACT RDM-based deliverables.
Project DeliverablesThe project deliverables is: • Deliverable 1: Application Programming Interface Technical Speciation )API-TechSpec)
Exit CriteriaThe exit criteria will be: • API Tech Spec ready for publication and Public Review disposition log demonstrating that all Public Review comments have been addressed.
Project Team Membership and Required Functional ExpertiseMembership is open to UN/CEFACT experts with broad knowledge in the area of: broad knowledge of UN/CEFACT e-business standards and/or API technical knowledge.
Geographical FocusThe geographical focus of the project is global.
