API toolkit versions
The latest version of the z/OS Connect EE API toolkit plug-in to design and create your services and APIs is V188.8.131.52 for Aqua 3.1 users, and V184.108.40.206 for Aqua 3.2 users. You should obtain the latest version of the API toolkit from the Aqua download site for your version of Aqua as it includes all the latest features and fixes.
The z/OS Connect EE API toolkit has been enhanced to present the Liberty API Explorer web interface for users to examine and test deployed APIs without concern for CORS restrictions. You will need to use this version of the API toolkit (or later) if you wish to use this API Discovery feature.
If unzipping the API toolkit zip file on Windows, due to the long filenames of some of the file members, you should use a tool such as 7-Zip or the “jar -x” command. Do not use winzip, winrar, or the Windows own zip extraction tool, as warnings/errors will occur during the unzip and the API toolkit will be unusable.
