8. Versioning

Learn the importance of versioning in API development to ensure backward compatibility. Explore different versioning strategies, such as URL versioning, custom headers, and media type versioning

Versioning ensures that changes to the API don't break existing clients. Different versioning strategies include:

  • URL Versioning: Incorporating the version in the URL path.
  • Header Versioning: Using a custom header to specify the version.
  • Media Type Versioning: Using different media types (MIME types) for different versions.

Versioning allows clients to adapt to changes at their own pace.
