Need for machine-readable Application Interface
Hi Zak and Joseph, thanks for your response. Would this capability be available only for Cloud Controller API or for rest of the platform API set as well? Also, would the same capability be available for end application developers (PaaS developers) so that the same application interface metadata is generated across the board within CF PaaS environment - that was my key goal for this discussion (something like JSON Schema for Heroku).
As I mentioned earlier that having a standardized application interface such as WADL/JSON/Swagger/RAML allows us to enforce Deployment Governance at the time of deploying applications within Cloud Foundry. In order to be able to expose business capabilities such as Telecom APIs, Deployment Governance (i.e. API Versioning & Backward Compatibility, Dependency Management, and other API Policy Validations etc.) is very important requirement not just for telecom industry but for any industry planning to monetize their APIs created within CF PaaS environment. Thanks.

It is something we are thinking about for the V3 cloud controller API, but
no formal decisions have been made at this point. So feedback and
suggestions are certainly welcome.

Hi folks, I would like to start a thread on the need for
We are talking only about the Cloud Controller API. Those APIs would be
available to all developers. We're not sure what you are looking for beyond
