What are disadvantages of REST web services?

Posted by Andre Scott | Updated on

Some of the disadvantages of REST are:

  • Since there is no contract defined between service and client, it has to be communicated through other means such as documentation or emails.
  • Since it works on HTTP, there can’t be asynchronous calls.
  • Sessions can’t be maintained.
