application program interface(sometimes called middleware), n. (API, abbr.)Software conventions that provide a link between one application and another piece of software.
NotesAPIs are used primarily to support portability of applications across different operating systems. A single application makes calls to APIs customized to support that application on different platforms. However, APIs may also support interactions between an application and the system or between different applications.
