    When you divide a big monolithic application into small functional parts that works independently from each other, you need a wrapper around them some sort of Facade such that they behave as a single application to the client. That wrapper is known as API Gateway. Its a one stop shop for the client, anything client wants API Gateway will get it for him. It has many other functionalities.

    The API Gateway will often handle a request by invoking multiple microservices and aggregating the results. It can translate between web protocols such as HTTP and WebSocket and web‑unfriendly protocols that are used internally.J

    An application programming interface (API) is a set of protocols, routines, functions and/or commands that programmers use to develop software or facilitate interaction between distinct systems. APIs are available for both desktop and mobile use and are typically used for programming GUI (graphic user interface) components, as well as allowing a software program to request and accommodate services from another program.

    API gateway is a piece of software running on or near the periphery of the network hosting your system services and API (micro)services which will provide some or all of the following security and management features:
    API creation (sometimes even offering visual editors)
    API management (API lifecycle - draft, publish, upgrade etc)
    Portal features (allowing users to discover and use your APIs)

    An application program interface (API) allows two or more software programs to communicate with each other to achieve greater functionality for a product. An AWSuser creates, manages and maintains APIs within Amazon API Gateway, which accepts and processes concurrent API calls.
