A REST API will only be effective if it has a correct design. In this ebook, WSO2 teaches us how to create secure and high performance APIs that reach Level 2 of the Richard Maturity Model for APIs based on REST architectures.
Among other things, in this ebook we will learn how to:
- Create data models and resources that can be processed by APIs.
- Prepare URIs.
- Specify the representation of each resource and decide the structure of the data for the content of the information.
- Manipulate REST resources and use HTTP headers as a vehicle for non-functional REST API properties.
