Will modules have access to OKAPI services via protocols other than HTTP?

18 Aug '16

HTTP was selected because it is probably the most supported in a variety of technology stacks. It is not necessarily the only protocol that will be supported; for instance, we are anticipating gateways to some messaging protocols that can hook into events that the system fires off under certain circumstances. In our testing with Vert.X, we have found that the request proxying and handling can be supported at significant scales for OKAPI’s intended use.
