Natural API Management Documentation : Concepts and Facilities : Exposing Natural as an API : Step-by-Step
This section describes the procedure that is used to expose Natural business rules as an API and to enable the registration and governance of the deployed assets.
This procedure is based on Natural programs on a mainframe, but it also works for Natural on Linux, UNIX and Windows (LUW).
