ApacheCon 2021: Extending Headless CMS APIs with Groovy
Typical headless content management system (CMS) platforms provide a fixed set of content APIs for building software applications across a variety of digital channels, ranging from websites to mobile apps to IoT devices and everything in between. The emergence of headless CMS architectures has improved developer productivity and flexibility for building these types of content-rich, multi-channel digital experiences.
This talk describes an approach to extend traditional headless CMS architectures to include the ability to develop custom content APIs and backend services with Groovy. We will discuss architectural approaches to consider, the pros and cons of using Groovy scripting, and lessons learned from real-world use cases at several Fortune 500 enterprises over the course of the last 2 years.
