Full Title

Representational state transfer


The core concept of the Web where the base HTTP message is:

  • Stateless - any message can be sent to any End Point and must be processed.
  • Asynchronous - HTTP was designed to react to user requests as the need is articulated by a user at his own time and place.


Nearly all interactions on the web occur in a burst where users expect that the service end point will remember the last transaction.


Cookies and HTTP headers contain state data to be used from one message to the next.
