Clarifying about API's
August 28, 2015
Today I need to clarify some things about API’S.
What REST is NOT - Is not about using HTTP methods
What REST is - REST is about dealing with resources. - About treating
a URL as a resource.
What RPC is NOT - RPC is not about serving HTML; - It’s not about
generating specific services that matches 1:1 the frontend needs;
What is RPC - Is about much of the remaining aways of implementing not
RPC and REST are both ways of delivering an API An web API being REST . or RPC has to carry in it’s essence the premise that it should be . generic RPC is not excuse for bad design, performance might be, not RPC.
That’s it :).
