Google has announced its latest directory services. This move is a delight for all keen entrepreneurs that are willing to incorporate some of the Web services offered by Google for its users in their in-house applications. These directory services are a whole new series that was launched by Google last Monday of this month.
The Google APIs Discovery service provides a central location to locate the APIs or the application programming interfaces for all the Web services that are being offered by Google at present for third-party use. Google calendars, Google spreadsheets, YouTube video delivery, and Google translation services are few of such Web services that are made available by Google openly for third-party use. All in all, Google provides over 25 API services, and all of them are REST (representational state transfer) based. However, this API Discovery series by Google is available via an API only, and hence, it would be easier for the users to get familiar with it.
The announcement of release of Google’s APIs Discovery Service was made via blog. Further news related with this service was published on the blog to notify the world about its arrival. To believe what was published on blog, API will also allow developers to create individual client libraries and integrated developer environment plug-ins that will give access to the developers directly to the resources.
Using Google APIs Discovery service, Google itself developed numerous different clients resource consolidate this fact. Some of the clients build by Google include an Eclipse plug-in, a Web explorer, and client libraries for Java, Microsoft .NET, PHP, Python, and Ruby.
All open to clients APIs exist in Google's revamped API infrastructure, which make things easier to understand about the internal maintenance of the APIs as per the announcement made on the official blog of Google.
