If so, then I haven’t met him yet. I try to give a short answer: Colloquially, the term REST is used to describe any application programming interface that uses the methods defined in the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (mainly GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE). In the actual sense REST is an architecture style for distributed systems, which can not only be implemented with the Hypertext Transfer Protocol. On the other hand, this architectural style is consistently adhered to by very few HTTP APIs. 0 Reply Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
