How Gemini Code Assist Build High-Quality APIs with AI

In contemporary architectures, APIs and application integrations constitute the digital nervous system. APIs are the conduits that link your intelligence apps and models of artificial intelligence to data sources dispersed throughout various systems and environments, and integrations propel intelligent actions throughout your SaaS workflows. To guarantee consistent standards and quality, developing these APIs and integrations, however, frequently calls for specialised knowledge and a significant investment of time and money.

We’re thrilled to share that Gemini Code Assist will be available for use in the public preview of Google Cloud’s Apigee API Management and Application Integration. Building enterprise-grade APIs and integrations is made easier with Gemini Code Assist’s natural language prompts, which don’t require any specialized knowledge.

Gemini Code Assist: AI-driven support Customised for your business

Even though pre-made AI assistants can assist in developing APIs and integrations, the process still takes a lot of time because every business is different and has different needs in terms of schemas, data sources, and requirements. Users will still need to handle these items manually unless the AI assistant comprehends this context.

Gemini Code Assist uses its understanding of enterprise context security schemas, API patterns, integrations, etc. To generate recommendations that are specifically suited to your use case. Moreover, you can iterate on your current API or integration while still in development by utilising Gemini Code Assist rather than starting from scratch. Finally, new ideas are sparked by Gemini’s proactive suggestions.

Building APIs with Gemini Code Assist

The turnkey API management solution from Google Cloud, Apigee, allows developers to create, manage, and secure APIs for any use case and any type of environment (on-premises or cloud). Apigee can be accessed via the Google Cloud console or by using the Cloud Clode plug-in in popular IDEs like VS Code.

Additionally, you no longer need any specialised knowledge to create reliable, high-quality APIs in Apigee with Gemini Code Assist. If the API specifications that are currently available in API Hub do not satisfy your needs, you can use Gemini to create a new one by just stating your needs in plain English. Gemini Code Assist uses artefacts, like your security schemas or API objects in API Hub, to generate an enterprise-specific specification. Considerable time is saved in the cycles of development and review.

To test and drive multiple development streams simultaneously, you can publish the specification to API Hub using Apigee, which simulates real-world API behaviour.

Additionally, Gemini provides detailed instructions for adding new policy configurations as you’re setting up an API proxy. Last but not least, Gemini also lowers the learning curve during updates and maintenance by offering explanations for your current configurations.

Building automations and integrations with Gemini Code Assist

Google Cloud’s Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), known as Application Integration, connects any application proprietary or third-party SaaS with point-and-click ease, automating business processes. With its user-friendly interface, you can create intricate workflows, map data, and expedite processes using pre-made tasks and triggers.

And now, with Gemini Code Assist, any member of your team can just describe their requirements to create Application Integration end-to-end automation flows. For instance, you can use Gemini to have a bug tracking system (like JIRA) automatically update a case when a new issue is created in your CRM (like Salesforce). You have two options: either ask Gemini a question or use the interface’s one-click suggestion feature. Gemini recommends several flows that are specific to your use case based on the prompt and the current enterprise context, such as applications or APIs.

Gemini automatically generates variables and pre-configures tasks based on your enterprise context, ensuring that the integration is ready to use right away. Gemini is not just a prompt-responding tool; it also analyses your flow intelligently and makes proactive recommendations for optimisations, like swapping out connectors or optimising REST endpoint calls. With just one click, Gemini also enables you to expand current flows, greatly minimising the amount of maintenance required.

Because the Application Integration interface is visual, new users can ramp up more easily because the flow is self-explanatory. To speed up the integration’s adoption, Gemini even automatically creates intelligent descriptions based on current configurations.

When developing APIs, integrations, and automation flows, Gemini Code Assist can be a very useful tool.

Code Completion

Gemini Code Assist can provide context-based function, variable, and class completions as you write code. You can avoid mistakes and save time typing by doing this.

Code Generation

To create complete code blocks or functions for frequent tasks, utilise Gemini Code Assist. For example, Gemini Code Assist can assist you in writing a function to call a Google Cloud API.

Having large codebase awareness is especially helpful when working on codebases that already exist. You can give Gemini Code Assist instructions to make significant changes throughout your codebase using natural language prompts. Consider how you could use it to perform thorough code reviews, update dependencies across several files, or add a new feature!

Languages Supported

Verify whether the list of supported languages, which includes over 20 languages like Java, Python, and C++, includes your favourite programming language.

Recall that Gemini Code Assist is available for free trial until July 11th, 2024, so now would be a good time to give it a try and see if it can improve your development process.

Start now

The fundamental building blocks that enable unique experiences with AI models and applications are APIs and integrations. You can considerably lessen the effort involved in developing these APIs and integrations while still upholding your enterprise quality standards by using Gemini Code Assist. Gemini Code is available for use.
