Debunking the Myths of RPC & REST

"The internet is chock-full of articles, blog posts, and discussions about RPC and REST. Most are targeted at answering a question about using RPC or REST for a particular application, which in itself is a false dichotomy."

Understanding RPC Vs REST For HTTP APIs

"For the last few years, whenever somebody wants to start building an HTTP API, they pretty much exclusively use REST as the go-to architectural style, over alternative approaches such as XML-RPC, SOAP and JSON-RPC. REST is made out by many to be ultimately superior to the other “RPC-based” approaches, which is a bit misleading because they are just different. This article discusses these two approaches in the context of building HTTP APIs, because that is how they are most commonly used. REST and RPC can both be used via other transportation protocols, such as AMQP, but that is another topic entirely."

RESTful API Designing guidelines — The best practices

"The API is an interface, through which many developers interact with the data. A good designed API is always very easy to use and makes the developer’s life very smooth. API is the GUI for developers, if it is confusing or not verbose, then the developer will start finding the alternatives or stop using it."
