Notes on REST Architecture

REST stands for Representation State Transfer

the main characteristics of REST are:

  • Distributed Network of interlinked documents
  • Client-server architecture
  • Stateless Server
  • The concept of Resource and Resource Representation
the action of retrieving a resource must be Idempotent, the fact that you made the request should not change the contents of the resource.

From "Beginning Python 2005"
