Concepts

The document explains the core concepts underlying APS development, including the platform fundamentals and syndication of cloud services.

For system integrators, the key point is that the platform can integrate with proprietary cloud applications and systems, thus building multiple SaaS (software as a service) and IaaS (infrastructure as a service) systems on the same platform. The main part of the platform that implements this integration is APS (application packaging standard). To integrate a cloud application into the APS ecosystem, you need to develop an integration package (APS application package) compliant with the APS.

While reading this document, you dive deeper into the key points of the integration technology:

  • APS Resource Model - fundamentals of the resource model, APS types, REST operations, and security details.
  • Platform Data Models - using the platform to manage resources and products based on application services.
  • Backend - interaction of the integrated services, including various types of connection, and the security model.
  • Frontend - integration of application custom UI into the platform control panels.
  • Integration Project - typical project phases, roles, and design-develop-test details.
