Representational state transfer (REST) is an architectural style that gives a coordinated set of constraints to the design of components in a distributed hypermedia system used to design networked applications. RESTful systems typically communicate over Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) with the same HTTP verbs (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, etc.) that web browsers use to retrieve web pages and to send data to remote servers. REST interfaces with external systems using resources identified by Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) that can be operated upon using standard verbs.

I am attempting to setup Rest API in VBA and need some help walking through the steps. Can anyone help me by walking me through step by step for that I can learn how to do this for future projects?
I have a PHP REST API, built from this tutorial:

I need to do these steps in one function and am not sure how to accomplish it.

1. Accept XML Request
2. Respond to request with XML response and 200 status code
3. Send another XML response and 200 status code to a URL parsed from the XML Request

Currently. I have it like this:
function ProAddRq() {

    // If this isn't a POST, respond with 405...
    if($this->get_request_method() != "POST"){
        $this->response('Error code 405, Method not allowed.',405);

    // Get the XML request from input
    $request = file_get_contents("php://input");

    // Get the RqUID from the request
    $xml = @simplexml_load_string($request);               
    $RUID = strtolower($this->xml->xpath("//ProAddRq/RUID")[0]);

    // Build the ACK message CML from the template
    $ack_data = array();
    $ack_data["RUID"] = $RUID;
    $ack_data["PKey"] = "2b3420be-69bf-4bb7-43bb-b632947e236b";
    $ack_data["Status"] = "Accept";

    // using PHP Mustache to render the XML with the values
    $xml_post_string = $this->m->render('../../views/ack' , $ack_data);

    // Call the SendInventory function to send to the URL that is parsed from the $request

    // set the content_type
    $this->_content_type = 'application/xml';

    // respond with the ACK and 200 response...
    // Setting

Can I replicate a search using the Google Maps API local search with  an iOS MKLocalSearchRequest() ?  For example, using the Google API, making a map search using the keyword "hostels" works correctly. In iOS using MKLocalSearchRequest(), using a naturalLanguageQuery, I just get hotels. Is there a way to fix this?  Or am i forced to use the Google Maps API within iOS?

I have a PayPal buy it now client side REST on my website. Payment process is working fine on my end, but the customer, after he pays, doesn't see the payment confirmation screen. I've read on PayPal Dev that I must show a confirmation without redirecting, which is something that I am doing now.

You must show a confirmation without redirecting the page. If you redirect the page, the actions.payment.execute() and actions.payment.get() functions are not available.

This is the code I am using:

<script src=""></script>
Dim price : price = "134.96"
<div id="paypal-button-container"></div>
<input type="hidden" name="price" id="price" value="<%=price%>" />
<script src="payment.js"></script>

Hi All,

I'm developing an app that the user can see which of its contacts are registered for the app.
Say I have a data base of users in the cloud what should be the rest end point for such operation?
Should I send all of the user's contact to the endpoint and the server will make the set intersection between the input contact set the its all registered contacts?
But what if the user has many contacts?

Thank u in advance

Hi guys,
when submitting data to a rest api via curl from php i sometimes get this error but very rarely- like 1 in a 100 times. Why would this be?

Data submitted with response <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">
<title>400 Bad Request</title>
<h1>Bad Request</h1>
<p>Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.<br />

I have a rest api webservice which is going to return data in form of json doc. In my case it’s a object which I serialize via newtonsoft json. Works all fine but the json string I get in postman has all the escape slashes.  How can I get rid of those other then running a replace
I am trying to build a REST API in .NET and are running into some issues. My service will use JSON Data which is send to the Server in the Body.
I Created a Data Class like
        Private HEAD As ADDR_VAL_HEADER
        Private BODY As ADDR_VAL_BODY
End Class[

 Public Class ADDR_VAL_BODY

        Private AFT As String = ""
        Private LD3 As String = ""
        Private LV3 As String = ""
        Private CITY As String = ""
... and so on

Open in new window

and here my basic sample for the post

      Public Function PostValue(<FromBody()> ByVal value As ADDR_VAL_REQUEST) As String
            If ModelState.IsValid Then

                Return "OK"

                Return "Error"
            End If

        End Function

Open in new window

Which fails, if i only post the body it works and i can parse the city just fine. So my question what do i need to do to be able to pass
more complex data like mine. It even fails if i send data like this

{		 "ADDR_VAL_BODY": {
			 "LV3": "",
			 "CITY": "NEW YORK"

Open in new window

but works for
			 "LV3": "",
			 "CITY": "NEW YORK"

Open in new window

So here is my question, ow do you handle cases where the Data is more complex like in my case ? If the build in parsing does not work, how do i go about to access the posted body to get the json string and parse it via code myself ?
We cannot make a REST call using Classic ASP over TLS 1.2. This call is to get the authorization token from Paypal. We have tried lots of code variants with no success:

Example 1:
            Set xmlHttp = Server.CreateObject("WinHTTP.WinHTTPRequest.5.1")
            xmlHttp.Open "POST", "", False
            xmlHttp.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
            xmlHttp.setRequestHeader "Accept", "application/json"
            xmlHttp.setRequestHeader "Accept-Language", "en_US"
            basico = "Basic " & Base64Encode(paypal_client_id & ":" & paypal_client_secret)
            xmlHttp.setRequestHeader "Authorization", basico <== "Invalid procedure call or argument"
            xmlHttp.Send "grant_type=client_credentials"

Example 2:
            Set xmlHttp = Server.Createobject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP.6.0")
            xmlHttp.Open "POST", "", False
            xmlHttp.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
            xmlHttp.setRequestHeader "Accept", "application/json"
            xmlHttp.setRequestHeader "Accept-Language", "en_US"
            basico = "Basic " & Base64Encode(paypal_client_id & ":" & paypal_client_secret)
            xmlHttp.setRequestHeader "Authorization", basico
            xmlHttp.Send "grant_type=client_credentials"  <== "An error occurred in the secure channel support"

Also, we've been able to make it with .NET and with PHP at the same server.

I'm currently using Roaster to generate a rest class, but i don't know how to implements http annotation (Get, Post,..) ?

Here's what I was trying to generate them with :

public class RestGenerator {

    JavaClassSource source = Roaster.create(JavaClassSource.class);
    source.addMethod().setName("Create").setPrivate().setBody("return null;")

    source.addMethod().setName("Delete").setPrivate().setBody("return null;")

output :

public class RestController

   private void Create()
      return null;

   private void Delete()
      return null;
Can I use the Telegram Bot API for listetning to message on a private invite-only channel?

Background information:
I was hired to do a gig for doing a Telegram bot that could parse messages and saved them into plain text. Now, I was told that the bot is required to listen to message in invite-only  channels. While doing some research, looks like this is a bit of an issue. I heard some suggest to use the Telegram Client API (instead of Bot), can someone confirm this is possible on the Bot API, or if I actually ave to switch towards Client?
