00:24 Gormandy I have a project that requires me to build a REST API to handle GET requests, so if I get something like GET users/bob I have to respond with bob’s last name. I’m using the Java HTTPServlet library, is just reading the GET request query string and parsing out bob and returning the last name not REST?
00:25 Gormandy I’m confused as to what the spec means when it says a REST API. What makes it different than just an HTTP server?
00:25 _ollie well, HTTP is an instance of REST basically…
00:26 mgomezch joined #rest
00:26 _ollie REST describes the core principles HTTP is built on. REST says: uniform interface… HTTP says: GET, PUT, POST, DELETE et.al.
00:34 Gormandy oh okay, I understand
