Different Architectural Styles of APIs Thread ๐Ÿงต๐Ÿ‘‡

The architectural style is the predefined set of characteristics and features of the API. For APIs, there are numerous architectural design options. REST, SOAP, and XML-RPC are the most widely used types.
1๏ธโƒฃ REST (Representational State Transfer) API. REST) API is an interface that provides a set of HTTP methods to access resources on a server. It is often used to execute web application tasks or get data from a database.
2๏ธโƒฃ RPC (A remote procedure call) is a way of communication between two applications running on different machines. RPCs enable software to call a function on a different program and system. In other words, it enables one program to launch a method or subroutine in another.
RPCs are frequently used to access program functionality that is not available locally. RPCs can even be used to interact with other programs running on the same computer.
3๏ธโƒฃ SOAP API (Simple Object Access Protocol API) is a type of API that allows two systems to communicate using the SOAP protocol. It is a protocol that uses XML data format to communicate messages across the network.
You may exchange complicated items back and forth between two programs using SOAP. Additionally, it makes sure that your communication will reach its target unaltered.
