Software DevelopmentGraphQL federation for everyone!
Ruben Oostinga 15 Oct, 2019
When interfacing between systems it is good practice to think about the interface design prior to developing the systems. GraphQL can be a useful tool to write down these design decisions using its schema definition language. Even when you are not using GraphQL itself in production. GraphQL’s schema can be used to generate a mock server for clients and can verify whether the responses of the server are valid. This way a clear and precise agreement on the API can be made upfront to avoid costly surprises at the end of the development phase.
