In computer programming, an application programming interface (API) specifies how some software components should interact with each other.In addition to accessing databases or computer hardware, such as hard disk drives or video cards, an API can be used to ease the work of programming graphical user interface components.

In some other cases, notably for SOAP and REST services, an API comes as just a specification of remote calls exposed to the API consumers.
