This book is for those programmers who want to build their own applications using APIs (Application Programming Interface). It’s written in a way that even a beginner can understand the contents easily. It covers a number of Web APIs with complete details and also offers numerous examples of how to use them in real-world situations. The book starts off with concepts of Web APIs and moves on to tell how to use Web APIs for professional app development, how to call Web APIs using SOAP over HTTP and more. Instead of talking about only one API throughout the book, the author talks about multiple APIs and a complete chapter is devoted for that API. There are six Web APIs, that the author talks about in this book, which include Google, MapPoint,, eBay and PayPal. Further in this book there are some other APIs discussed and the author also provides complete information on how to use these APIs in your own program. As you move ahead you will get detailed information on calling Web APIs from Mobile Devices. There are two case studies at the end of this book-one about Customer Relations Management Application and other about Executive Dashboard Application. The author has provided examples wherever required, and diagrams and visuals also. A nice book for people who are interested in building their own application using Web APIs.
