What are RESTful APIs?
RESTful (Representational State Transfer) APIs are stateless, client-server based frameworks that rely on HTTP to obtain data and understand data. It’s the standard format used by most enterprise applications since 2000 and has nearly eradicated the use of SOAP or WSDL.
Benefits of RESTful Design
A RESTful architecture sets the basis for a fully-functional application including the following benefits:
Scalability - Since the server is stateless, it can handle increased requests with ease, allowing for greater scalability.
Easily adjusts to advancements in technology and languages.
