Heads up, I have no experience with any of the front-end stacks, I'm just aware of what's trending (React / Angular / Vue)
So far I have only worked with monolithic MVC applications, but not so long ago I learned how to do REST APIs using Spring Boot
What's the workflow to make use of external REST services in an MVC application?
Let's say I make a basic REST API to handle CRUD
Would the REST calls have to be made in the controller? therefore skipping the model, or do I call them through the view by using ajax? (skipping both the controller and the model)
I'm honestly confused, I just need some guidance
Please and thank you :)
