12.3. About RESTful Web Services

RESTful web services are designed to expose APIs on the web. They aim to provide better performance, scalability, and flexibility than traditional web services by allowing clients to access data and resources using predictable URLs.
The Java Enterprise Edition 6 specification for RESTful services is JAX-RS. For more information about JAX-RS, refer to Section 12.1, “About JAX-RS” and Section 12.2, “About RESTEasy”.
