  • How to build a Snowflake API?
    10 projects | | 17 Jan 2023
    An example of a Snowflake API request using Java. This example uses Java’s built-in HttpClient and constructs JSON manually, so it doesn’t require additional dependencies; however, in production, you should use a library like Jackson for constructing JSON. Additionally, for stronger typing, you could use Apollo’s Kotlin-based GraphQL client.
