Software AG unveils webMethods Service Designer, a lightweight integration and development tool

At its North America User Group Conference starting today in New York, Software AG unveiled webMethods Service Designer, a lightweight integrated design and development tool for building integrations and APIs. This tool provides users free access with a one year trial license to develop Flow services, APIs and integrations using Eclipse and generate unit test cases for the purpose of DevOps automation. Lightweight and easy to install and set up, the download comes with a simplified view of the Service Development perspective coupled with VCS integration capabilities, along with the Eclipse E-Git plugin. It can be used for developing, editing, testing and debugging APIs and their underlying services.

“The digital age is creating new business models and new opportunities virtually overnight,” said Stefan Sigg, Software AG’s Chief Product Officer. “To compete, you need to harness your digital DNA by connecting business apps, devices, big data, the Internet of Things (IoT) and hybrid cloud and quickly be ready for what’s next. The webMethods Service Designer offers a lightweight possibility to do just that – be ready virtually overnight for whatever comes next.”
