What Is RESTful?

Abstract

This chapter explores what a service following the REST architectural style should look like to a caller. Considering that such an API is supposed to better leverage the HTTP protocol and its various aspects, focusing on HTTP verbs and resources, its interface will be markedly different from your typical RPC-style API. So, as we design the service, we will compare the REST approach with a more traditional RPC or SOAP approach.
