Hi Frank,

REST (Representational state transfer) is a style of software architecture.RESTful is typically used to refer to web services that implement such an architecture.

A RESTful web service has following basic characteristics which are:

  • Use HTTP methods explicitly.
  • Be stateless.
  • Expose directory structure-like URIs.
  • Transfer XML, JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), or both.
