SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) is a web service communication protocol for XML-based message exchange. REST (Representational State Transfer) is an architectural style for creating stateless services.
Representational State Transfer or REST (also referred to as RESTful) is one of the most popular types of API architectural styles. REST APIs typically communicate between a client and server using HTTP methods.
An API (not be confused with the American Petroleum Institute), is an acronym for Application Programming Interface, is a set of definitions and protocols that allow technology products and services to communicate with each other via the internet.
