Introduction

The REST acronym sands for Representational State Transfer and it is a style of software architecture for distributed systems such as the World Wide Web.  REST has emerged as the predominant web API design model. Some of the advantages of REST include the scalability of component interactions, generality of interfaces, and independent deployment of components.
