In this article, we will explore how to integrate OpenAI’s ChatGPT APIs with a Spring Boot application and manage the APIs using Apache APISIX, an open-source API gateway. This integration will allow us to leverage the power of ChatGPT in our Spring Boot application, while APISIX will provide a robust, scalable, and secure way to manage the APIs.
OpenAI’s ChatGPT API is a powerful tool that we can use to integrate the capabilities of the ChatGPT model into our own applications, or services. The API allows us to send a series of messages and receive an AI model-generated message in response via REST. It offers a bunch of APIs to create text responses in a chatbot, code completion, generate images, or answer questions in a conversational interface. In this tutorial, we will use chat completion API to generate responses to a prompt (basically we can ask anything). Before starting with the tutorial, you can explore the API to have an understanding of how to authenticate to the API using API keys, how API request parameters and response look like.
