Re: Info*Engine vs OData REST API

Hi VladiSlav,

 

 

Unfortunately, I've used only REST API so far, so I can't give you the functional comparison, but I can mention 2 other important things to consider:

1. Info * Engine is a proprietary technology, while REST API is de-facto an industry standard

2. There are plans to deprecate Info * Engine in the future Windchill releases

 

 

Kind regards,

Dmitry.

Re: Info*Engine vs OData REST API

Thank you very much for your reply!

Could you please write a source from PTC, where is it written that I*E will be deprecated?
I would like to study this issue in more detail.
Thanks in advance!

Re: Info*Engine vs OData REST API

Hi VladiSlav,

 

 

This solution acceptance was a bit premature - you might consider the functional capabilities of each integration method first.

 

Keep in mind that OData REST API has a domain for executing I*E tasks.

 

Here is the concern about I*E from before the OData REST API has been first released. 

What I have been referring to is the I*E deprecation mentioned in the Windchill roadmap session during LiveWorx 2019. I may sift through the available videos for the proof. The official announcement might be delayed for a while until REST API catches up functionally with I*E. Also, I*E have been available for a while and have some default ERP connectors implemented, so I wouldn't worry about PTC discontinuing it in the foreseeable future or ever.

 

 

Kind regards,

Dmitry.
