RESTful API Design

Your application's success depends on well-designed APIs.

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.

  • Reliability

  • Security

  • Easily adjusts to advancements in technology and languages.

  • Angie's List Case Study

    The Engineering team at Angie’s List knew that they needed to transition their site to a more modern, flexible and performance-based framework like Scala. Their rapid growth was not compatible with the current .Net legacy stack and they were finding the infrastructure to be inflexible, slow, and lacking the usability they required to move forward. When they needed specific expertise from highly experienced Scala developers for the transition, the team turned to 47 Degrees.

    Increasingly, organizations demand web applications that are resilient, interactive, scalable and even-driven to meet end user expectations. Reactive applications like these require sophisticated tools and middleware to build, deploy and manage them. The team at 47 Degrees has demonstrated impressive creativity and vision in this new space of reactive applications and we’re thrilled to have a working partnership as they continue to help build forward thinking web and mobile applications with Scala, Play Framework and Akka.
