About Azure App Service [ Web Apps, Mobile Apps, API Apps and Logic Apps] — WAML Apps

In the recent build conference, we had few Azure announcements. Yes out of that, “Azure App Service” is something important for dev’s to learn and try out. Had a chance to go through this announcements, so thought of sharing the awesomeness in this post. Azure App service has got 4 features – Web, Mobile, Logic and API as below.

It actually enables us to to easily create Web(web sites) + Mobile + Logic + API Apps and also facilitate us to refer each of them without complex coding or integration pains.

  1. Azure Web Apps (aka Azure Websites – renamed)
  2. Azure Mobile Apps (aka Mobile Services)
  3. Azure Logic Apps (‘workflow’ style apps – get the data from one connector and pass it on to diff connectors)
  4. Azure API Apps (uses Swagger)

Azure Web Apps(a.k.a Azure Websites)

+ straightforward web hosting multitenant platform(PaaS), you can build and host websites using .NET, Java, Node.js, PHP, and Python. there is nothing new here, except renamed from Azure WebSites if you are familiar with.

Azure API Apps

+ new apps from MSFT, this is nothing but our HTTP based API projects. These API can be consumed by the application developed using .NET, Java, Node.js, PHP, and Python. It has got the metadata formatted by swagger (opensource frmk)

Azure Mobile Apps

+ SSO, + build engaging iOS, Android and Windows apps.
+ same like other apps – autoscale helps us to meet the sudden demand
+ you can easily integrate with facebook, Twitter, Google etc.

Azure Logic Apps.

+ again new from MSFT, it has the graphical dashboard workflow diagrams which helps us to experiment and implement easily without much of complex integration code. You could automate certain business process or workflow using designer. For out of the box, you may have to find one from market place. Key things include: Workflow, Connectors, Triggers, Actions
