DreamFactory Platform & Installer FAQs
API management software helps you manage your custom APIs, but you have to build REST APIs yourself. DreamFactory, on the other hand, is a transactional run-time server for client applications that
1) automatically generates REST APIs for you,
2) enables you to customize API behavior with server-side scripts
3) manages all the backend security for those APIs
4) returns JSON / XML from REST API calls at runtime.
Since DreamFactory is self-hosted software, we require a call with an engineer to discuss licensing, installation, and pricing. This will ensure you have all the information needed to be successful.
