Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Enterprise Integration Zone (Feb. 14 to Feb. 20). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Your API Versioning is Wrong

Every way you turn there are different takes on REST, what is RESTful, what is not, and if it even matters. This article talks about API changes, the impact on versioning, why there are so many diverging ideas on how it should be done, and why none of the banter is as important as actually getting stuff done.

2. Cooking with Camel: New Cookbook with Recipes for Apache Camel!

Word on the street is that Camel tastes good. Well, I can’t vouch for that (as I haven’t tried it…), but what I can vouch for is that working with Apache Camel for integration projects is awesome! If you haven’t bridled this beast of burden for some integration work, then I bet you’ve been wasting a lot of time.

3. APIs: A New Path to SOA

We have seen the same evolution that happened within the enterprise now happening at a broader level between companies. APIs will keep increasing exponentially in number, and that evolution will be accompanied by a new breed to technologies focused on simplifying the exposing and consuming of APIs.

4. Application Services Governance: Best Practices Accelerates Safe Delivery

This article brings heavy emphasis to what exactly Application Services Governance is, and focuses specifically on the best practices to accelerate safe delivery. Application Services Governance is a mechanism to achieve business agility, build a responsive IT organization, and optimize IT effectiveness.

5. Defining an API Governance Approach

Leading API governance platforms provide analytics supporting the assessment of IT business value. The platform should capture service tier subscription information, collects usage statistics, present productivity metrics, and integrate with billing and payment systems.
