Confusion with Process Engine API and Engine API

There is a confusion when I read the PDN post about "Process Engine API - definition". In the Note(Star button) it says 

"Don't confuse the Process Engine API with the Engine API, a collection of documented Java interfaces also known as the Public API."

 

PDN Link for the article : https://pdn.pega.com/node/99566

 

According to this statement Process Engine API and Engine API is different. But As far as I know it is same. I just want to make sure it is different or it is mistake but it shoud come as 

"Don't confuse the Process Engine API with the Public API, a collection of documented Java interfaces also known as the Public API"

 Please anyone help me to clear the confusion.  ThanksKartheepan.

Yes, both are different API's.

 

PROCESS API

A Collections of Standard rules for supporting various operation

These standard rules includes some activities, flows and flow actions that can be used to create work items, advance the work items through a flow, perform assignments and so on without user interaction or user forms. These rules can support Process Commander business processing through agents and service activities.

The list of the Process API rules is available on the PRPC API gadget.

for ex: startflow api

 

Engine API

These are known as Public API. Its a Java interface allow to interact with the CORE.

com.pega.pegarules.pub.* packages.

Typical usage is 

tools.findPage("mypage")

tools.getPrimaryPage()
