Public APIs are a big deal. They are intermediaries that enable applications to interact. Designing a set of interfaces that will meet business objectives, attract developers, and be long-lived is a technical challenge. After dealing with SOAP-based legacy APIs for years, we delivered new modern family of RESTful buy and sell public APIs which enable buyers to shop off-eBay and sellers to manage their business at scale. At eBay, our challenge was to create a vision for the new APIs, plan ahead, and deliver a stable contract that will last for years, even as we add business capabilities. Our API design is developer-centric and focused on exposing valuable solutions to empower third-party developers. APIs represent the consumer’s view of the functionalities. They are the front door to the portfolio of internal capabilities and have requirements tailored to external clients. This presentation outlines difficulties we faced and approaches we took to deliver new APIs and achieve consistency across capabilities.
