Re: Demo server required for future development in mobile

hi Maurya - I think this is a good point to raise and thank you for raising
it on list.

As I understand it, you want to have a demo server so that you can write a
front end application against the back end APIs of Fineract-CN.

First, I think you'll already know that this was the approach that the
community at Mifos took with MifosX, which migrated to fineract1.x .
As context, the strategy there was to have a demo server against which
anyone could write a front end and test their dev against a "dev sandbox"
for the backend.
This worked well.

Now, for fineract-CN, the basic difference as I understand it, is that
instead of a single possible API, there could a set of APIs based on which
microservices are included in the instance.  It may still be sensible to
have a demo server set up by *SOMEONE* (i.e. some outside group), or it may
make sense for fineract.apache.org to have a demo server.

I tried to find on the apache.org site any other project that has a similar
demo backend server. I haven't found one.  If someone knows of one, that is
hosted by apache, rather than an outside group, please do point it out.

What I found was that generally speaking, documentation about APIs are
provided but that run time instances are not.  For example, you can see the
apidocs of twill. http://twill.apache.org/apidocs/index.html

Setting aside the issue of choosing which microservices to run and how to
keep the API versioning straight (something that is still under discussion
on this liserv),
, I think we need to figure out if this is something that fineract
community *should* do as part of  the project, or if we want the broader
user-base should be asked / encouraged to do this.  There may not be a
single cannonical API document, which to me points to some strong
divergence from the current fineract1.x approach, and therefore that this
should be done outside of the project.

This seems like a decision where your input would be much valued!
