An application programming interface (API) defines a contract that is intended to be used by software components to communicate with each other. An API can take different forms, like Java interfaces, command-line parameters, web service interfaces, and others. The purpose of an API is to separate the public interface, which should be stable, from the internal implementation, which may frequently change. For Intershop, the Java API is formed by the cartridge API. Changes in an API should be avoided to ensure compatibility and are subject to strict policies. New APIs may be added in minor releases, existing APIs may only be changed in major releases.
