The requirements for supporting multiple versions of an API can be very high in terms of engineering support, backend resources, and simple bandwidth. 5/17/ · Defining a versioning strategy Hard-coded project versions have a major drawback. Starting a new release cycle by modifying the version number requires manual intervention. To make matters worse, the change has to be persisted (most likely by committing and pushing to version control) so that other team members use the same, shared version. Version of the application will help which version (code) deploy to development environment, which version (code) deploy to production environment. This is one of reason we must use versioning.
