Mike Peat is an advocate of RESTful APIs and to help explain the main benefits and advantages of why you should consider creating RESTful APIs for your business applications Mike Peat has recently written Why you should be creating RESTful APIs today. This article follows on from How to Create RESTful JSON Web Services in DataFlex.
To support these articles, Mike has built a RESTful web service for the DF19.0 WebOrder application which incorporates OAuth 2.0 authentication and a demo client for the service, using his DataFlex OAuth2 component. In addition, he has created a developer portal where you can register to create your own applications to access the service. Full information about the service and the demo are in the post Putting it all together OAuth2 Secured DataFlex RESTful Service.
