Book Description

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.

O'Reilly® Restful Web Services is a 2007 book by Leonard Richardson and Sam Ruby. It was the first book-length treatment of RESTful design, and the predecessor to RESTful Web APIs. RESTful Web APIs was designed as a complete replacement for RESTful Web Services, and in our opinion there's no longer any need to buy RESTful Web Services.
