What is Rest


“Rest is architectural style for distributed hypermedia systems”: REpresentational State Transfer (Rest != http)

Data and functionality are resources.

Resources are accessible using URI.

The resources are acted upon by using simple operations. HTTP is an implementation of a standardised interface.

Resources can have Metadata to express representation format, control caching, auth and access_control, etc.
