What is REST API?
REST, stands for Representational State Transfer, is an architecture that can be used dealing with web services. REST API defines the methods on which developers can perform requests and receive responses. Generally we use it for the various uses when we need JSON based data from one application to another one.
a REST service is:
- Platform-independent (you don’t care if the server is Windows, the client is a Linux/Android, or anything else),
- Language-independent (C# can talk to Java, etc.),
- Standards-based (runs on top of HTTP), and
- Can easily be used in the presence of firewalls.
