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.
