An API definition is identified by the <api> tag. Each API must specify a unique name and a unique URL context (see below). An API is made of one or more resources, which is a logical component of an API that can be accessed by making a particular type of HTTP call. For example:

Code Block
languagexml
<api name="API_1" context="/order">
    <resource url-mapping="/list" inSequence="seq1" outSequence="seq2"/>
</api>

Once a request is dispatched to a resource it will be mediated through the in-sequence of the resource. At the end of the in-sequence the request can be forwarded to a back-end application for further processing. Any responses coming from the back-end system are mediated through the out-sequence of the resource. You can also define a fault-sequence to handle any errors that may occur while mediating a message through a resource.
