For developers seeking to provide cloud services that use Linxter and public APIs
Linxter has launched an online directory Cloud Middleware, for developers who want to consume and provide cloud services that use Linxter and public APIs.
Linxter said that the cloud services available at CloudMiddleware.com are traditional web services (web APIs) that have been wired with Linxter, a communication platform that connects distributed applications and systems via message-based data exchange.
When traditional web services are wrapped with Linxter, they can be consumed securely and reliably, regardless of the number of intermediary networks involved and regardless of whether or not those networks are secure, the company said.
The company said that developers can take advantage of the Linxter platform has to offer including, message polling, transactional queues, X.509 message encryption, authentication and authorisation, internet connection retries, non-repudiation and file chunking.
For developers wishing to consume cloud services, CloudMiddleware.com currently offers OnlineCount that enables Linxter developers to determine how many people using the same application are online; and AvailableToPlay, a service that Linxter developers can use to determine who is online and available to play.
