The popularity of REST in recent years has led to tremendous
growth in almost-RESTful APIs that don't include many of the
architecture's benefits. With this practical guide, you'll learn
what it takes to design usable REST APIs that evolve over time. By
focusing on solutions that cross a variety of domains, this book
shows you how to create powerful and secure applications, using the
tools designed for the world's most successful distributed
computing system: the World Wide Web.
You'll explore the concepts behind REST, learn different
strategies for creating hypermedia-based APIs, and then put
everything together with a step-by-step guide to designing a
RESTful Web API.Examine API design strategies, including the
collection pattern and pure hypermediaUnderstand how hypermedia
ties representations together into a coherent APIDiscover how XMDP
and ALPS profile formats can help you meet the Web API "semantic
challenge"Learn close to two-dozen standardized hypermedia data
formatsApply best practices for using HTTP in API
implementationsCreate Web APIs with the JSON-LD standard and other
