The Apigee SOAP-to-REST Wizard helps developers reengineer IT architectures for modern web and mobile apps without wasting investments in legacy SOAP web services.

"Business [developers] must be able to expose web services and data through modern REST APIs. However, many companies either aren't ready to abandon the investment they have already made in SOAP or need to maintain some of their backend SOAP services for legacy systems and partners," said Brian Pagano, chief architect at Apigee.

"The Apigee SOAP-to-REST wizard takes a previously complex, costly, and time-consuming process and simplifies it down to a few points and clicks. It can really benefit businesses that need to quickly expose services and engage with customers and partners through flexible, modern apps."

"Converting existing services from SOAP to REST can be a time-consuming, costly, and often error-prone task, but with the new Apigee Wizard, it's easy for IT to present backend SOAP services to developers and partners as REST services."

NOTE: The Apigee Wizard works by generating a REST API based on Web Services Definition Language (WSDL) and then performs protocol conversion, message transformation, SOAP API modeling, and both basic and advanced policy enforcement using an intelligent algorithm.

In addition to the SOAP-to-REST Wizard, Apigee has recently added several other product features and enhancements to build, deliver, and manage apps, data, and APIs.
