We are pleased to announce that CA Gen 8.6 now offers the following APIs for convenient access to workstation generator functionality*.
*Note: Access will be limited to the generators for which you have licenses.
This enhancement was delivered in partnership with IET, enabling generation capabilities in Studio Developer through their modernized user interface. A special thank you to @Darius Panahy, the IET team, and all the beta testers.
It is our intent to expand API access to Gen functionality, and enhance the API implementation to optimize the user experience. This is just one more step towards that goal. We are eager for your feedback. The more we hear from you the more we will invest to ensure we deliver value you really need.

What is an API?
An API (Application Programming Interface) is a software intermediary that enables two applications to communicate with each other. They provide a set of definitions, creating a standardized way of communicating between, without developers having to know how the other system exactly works. Through APIs, developers gain access to functionality, which then can easily be used in their own applications.
Benefits of CA Gen Toolset Generation APIs
Note: These are JavaAPIs that generate from the Toolset, not from the CSE.
