re: A Brief Introduction to REST APIs VIEW POST


Are RESTful APIs inextricably bound to HTTP Verb implementations of the standard GET, PUT, DELETE, and POST methods ?

I get using HTTP Verbs to execute RESTful requests when managing static documents on a web server. No argument. Clear value proposition.

However, I'm wondering about embedding a RESTful API within the payload of a POST or GET request as appropriate, when modifying a database as opposed to documents or some other resource directly available to Apache, IIS, nginx, etc.
