Dreamfactory and GraphQL

In the 2.11 release of Dreamfactory we added support for GraphQL, the open sourced query language written by Facebook.  You can now harness the power of GraphQL inside of the API automation & integration structure of Dreamfactory.  Both REST and GraphQL offer advantages and disadvantages depending on your use case. There are several articles and posts out there expanding on this, but let’s walk through how to incorporate this service in your Dreamfactory instance.

Introducing Alternate User Authentication in DreamFactory 2.11

DreamFactory supports all kinds of authentication schemes out of the box, including traditional native authentication (managing users and passwords in its own database), OAuth 1.0 and OAuth 2.0, as well as OpenID Connect and SAML 2.0. While these options cover most authentication scenarios, there are situations where none of these solutions work. For these cases, DreamFactory 2.11 includes an alternate user authentication feature that allows you to use your own database and user table for DreamFactory user authentication.

Get your stream on with MongoDB GridFS

Starting in DreamFactory 2.11, you can create a MongoDB GridFS service. GridFS is a specification within MongoDB that allows you to store and retrieve files that exceed the BSON-document size limit of 16 MB. It does this by splitting the blob or file into separate chunks and storing each chunk as a separate document.

DreamFactory adds AMQP support

DreamFactory 2.11 now supports AMQP. As you may know, AMQP stands for Advanced Message Queuing Protocol. DreamFactory's AMQP client service is an implementation of the AMQP-0-9-1 Protocol. With this service you can now use DreamFactory as an AMQP client for your projects. Once you've configured the AMQP client service in DreamFactory, you can easily publish messages to exchange and consume messages from queues using REST APIs. We've tested this service with RabbitMQ.
