What is a RESTful API?

First, we need to understand what exactly is considered a RESTful API. REST stands for REpresentational State Transfer and is an architectural style for network communication between applications, which relies on a stateless protocol (usually HTTP) for interaction.

The Medinformer RESTful API uses GET and POST stateless protocol or HTTP requests to request either all medical brochures and all medical brochure articles (GET) or to request specific data about a medical brochure or medical brochure article (POST).
