Today, we are looking at how environment variables can be used to let the configuration of your
Zato API services be reusable across environments - this will help you centralize all
of your configuration artefacts without a need for changes when code is promoted across environments of different levels.
Using Zato, it is easy to make IBM MQ queues available to Python applications -
this article will lead you step-by-step through the process of setting up the Python integration platform to listen for
MQ messages and to send them to MQ queue managers.
As we are preparing to release
3.2 soon, all the programming examples are being rewritten to showcase what the platform is capable of.
That includes REST examples too and this article presents a few samples taken from the
The fan-out / fan-in pattern
is a staple of more advanced API integrations - let's check out in practice how,
with Zato, it can simplify asynchronous communication across applications
that do not always exhibit the same kind of availability or performance characteristics.
With the rise of Single-Page Applications (SPA) in web frontends, it is often the case that backend REST APIs
based on Zato need to be configured for CORS. This article will explore what CORS is
and how to make Zato participate in scenarios using it.
In many domains, transfer of static and batch files is an important part of systems integrations and a large number
of applications produce and expect data in the form of files rather than network-based APIs.
In this article, we shall see how
Zato makes multi-protocol integrations of this kind possible in a way that is secure,
scalable and easy to extend in Python.
Cloud-based connections are a staple of modern API integrations - this article shows how, in just a few lines of Python code,
Zato makes their usage easy, convenient and extremely effective.
