At its North America User Group Conference in New York on June 27, 2019, Software AG unveiled webMethods Service Designer, a lightweight integrated design and development tool for building and running integrations and APIs. This tool provides users free access with a one-year valid license to tools such as Software AG Designer with the Local Service Development plugin and Unit Test Framework. It also includes webMethods Microservices Runtime, Software AG’s light-weight API development and runtime environment. Easy to install and to set up, the bundle comes with a simplified view of the Service Development perspective coupled with VCS integration capabilities, along with the Eclipse E-Git plugin. It can be used for developing, editing, testing and debugging APIs and their underlying services.
Sized slightly less than 500 MB, this free download is available in the Software AG TECHcommunity. Users can get started by just downloading the zip file, where they can extract it and get started creating APIs and services instantly. The free download includes:
- webMethods Service Development plugin for designing and developing Integration Server assets (such as services, document types, triggers, and web service descriptors) and managing them with version control.
- webMethods Unit Test Framework for creating unit tests for the services, included in Continuous Integration for build verification.
- webMethods Microservices Runtime (referred to as Local Development Server) for deploying and testing the assets.
- JDBC Adapter for connecting to and integrating with SQL-based databases.
The download is available here.
