How RESTful Is Your REST?

Free Resource

Modernize your application architectures with microservices and APIs with best practices from this free virtual summit series. Brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.

How RESTful Is Your REST? from Øredev Conference on Vimeo.

The rise of Mobile and the diversity its technologies make exposing a RESTfull API the most crucial capability of any application and the key to its success. In the absence of widely adopted best practices and well-defined conventions, designing such an API is nothing but trivial. This presentation introduces the fundamentals of REST architecture, and discusses the principles of RESTfull design. Among the topics covered: resource modeling (URI design, and HTTP verbs/status code canonical usage), multiple representation support, testing, cache control, security (Http and OAuth), and API versioning. HATEOAS and REST maturity model are also discussed, along with an implementation of a sample API in JAX-RS and Spring MVC. No prior knowledge REST is required.
