RESTful Web Clients (O'Reilly)
RESTful Web Clients (O'Reilly)
Monday, 20 March 2017

Web-based REST and hypermedia-style APIs are becoming more common, but many developers rely on custom client code instead of applying the same techniques and patterns to hypermedia clients. In this book subtitled "Enabling Reuse Through Hypermedia", Mike Amundsen shows how to move from one-off implementations to general-purpose client apps that are stable, flexible, and reusable.

<ASIN:1491921900>

It provides background information, examples, dialogues, and clear recommendations for building effective hypermedia-based client applications.
