Mention some key characteristics of REST?

Posted by Jennifer | Updated on

Some key characteristics of REST includes:

  • REST is stateless, therefore the SERVER has no state (or session data)
  • With a well-applied REST API, the server could be restarted between two calls as every data is passed to the server
  • Web service mostly uses POST method to make operations, whereas REST uses GET to access resources
