“Representational State Transfer (REST) is a style of software architecture for distributed hypermedia systems such as the World Wide Web. The term originated in a doctoral dissertation about the web written in 2000 by Roy Fielding, one of the principal authors of the HTTP protocol specification, and has quickly passed into widespread use in the networking community.”

REST’s proponents argue that the web enjoyed the scalability and growth that it has had as a direct result of a few key design principles:

  • Application state and functionality are divided into resources
  • Every resource is uniquely addressable using a universal syntax for use in hypermedia links
  • All resources share a uniform interface for the transfer of state between client and resource, consisting of

    • A constrained set of well-defined operations
    • A constrained set of content types, optionally supporting code-on-demand


  • A protocol that is:

    • Client/Server
    • Stateless
    • Cacheable
    • Layered
