REST Adapter for SAP CPI
Web Services are the key point of integration for different applications belonging to different platforms, languages and systems. REST (Representational State Transfer) is an architectural style for distributed hypermedia systems which can be executed on any client or server that has HTTP/HTTPS. REST permits many different data formats such as XML, JSON, and Atom.
Since REST is based on standard HTTP/HTTPS, it is the ideal protocol for consumption by light-weight devices such as smart phones, tablets, and web-based applications such as Facebook, twitter, Amazon or ebay. Creating clients to consume REST services is much easier to develop, and most enterprise services can be built using REST instead of the more complicated SOAP protocol.
