Generating REST API

The word REST stands for REpresentational State Transfer. It is an architectural style used when designing networked applications. Web service APIs that conform to the REST architectural constraints are known as RESTful, or REST API. Visual Paradigm supports modeling the underlying communication model of REST API, as well as the generation of REST API and API documentation.

 

Overview of REST API Generation

REST is an architectural style used when designing networked applications. In this page you will learn what REST and REST API is and how Visual Paradigm supports REST.

 

Modeling REST API

You can design your REST API by drawing a class diagram that represents your resource, the request and response body. You will learn how to draw such a class diagram in this page.

 

Generating REST API as service provider

Once you have finished the modeling of your REST Resource(s), you can generate the API and, optionally, the API documentation. This page will show you how to generate REST API.

 

Using REST API (as a service consumer)

Consumers of RESTful service have to go through a series of steps in order to obtain the API code required for accessing a REST Resource. This page will show you the steps in detail.
