Who’s afraid of an upgrade?

Posted by Hans Bot on 21 Feb, 2019

With the success of the App Store as a market to distribute applications, people have gotten used to their apps getting updated regularly. In fact, many people simply accept their updates automatically, and trust the provider to not mess up. And then they forget about it altogether. After all, you want to use an app, not manage it, right? Given the scale of apps and the number of smartphones, it’s remarkable that this model works pretty much flawlessly. And the same model works for your phone operating system, especially when you’re on iOS (update practices of Android phone manufacturers differ).

Without any serious issue.

Running WSO2 API Manager 2.5.0 on a different hostname

Innovation is often the key to success in business. However, we often innovate in a linear fashion, meaning that we just create a new version of something that we currently have. Let me give you an example: If you find carrier pigeons too slow to deliver messages you simply start breeding faster flying pigeons. At one point, you almost inevitably will find that you are reaching the boundaries of what is possible. In this case, for instance, the speed with which a pigeon can fly. So, if you want to make the next step, you need something else if your demands for speedy delivery grows.

But it is already in some of the product like the API Manager 2.5.0 where we have the microgateway as part of the product enabling to migrate an API to the Ballerina based microgateway.
