Hi Hmanjarawala,

I am not answering here... I have a doubt here:

API (application programming interface) -- Is this means the one we used during in Ntier applications.
Like: Presentation Layer - Business Logic Layer - Data Access Layer - Interface
Is this it mean here about API -- ?

No APIs are third party developed software. i.e Microsoft's Win32APi.dll which are used for various functionality on windows
