Designing and Testing a RESTful Service

Services are used to invoke a process and to call out of the process so that a process receives data from a service and routes data to a service.

The key abstraction of information in REST is a resource. REST ignores the details of component implementation and protocol details. TIBCO® Cloud Integration currently allows the following HTTP methods to be performed on resources: GET, PUT, PATCH, DELETE, and POST. Both XML and JSON are supported as data serialization formats along with support for definition of custom status codes, path(URL) parameters, key-value parameters, query parameters, and custom HTTP headers.
