What does RESTful API mean?
Posted on 2014-08-21
The client-side requirements for a proposed project had the following specifications:
. Call RESTful API, passing student UID and requested information domain
. Process errors
. On success, decode returned JSON for presentation in the Portal
. Portal will not store student data
This project involves using an online form whereby the user enters the student's ID to retrieve information from a database on a server and also to add new information (records) to the database.
Can someone explain more clearly what the above means?
