I am trying to work with a service that its creators describe as "restful"
To make a request to this service I have to post some Json e.g.
"@type" : "Something"
"$value" : 1
This is posted to a URL similar to this;
No matter what the nature of the request, whether I am retrieving info, adding or updating it I must always use this URL (along with some header values to verify my credentials). The effects of posting to this service are determined by the JSON I send.
Depending on the nature of the call I will receive some JSON very similar to the sample above. This JSON never includes another URL (or part of one). It is always a "data object" i.e. a set of properties and their values. Sometimes I receive an empty response but know that the request has had an effect because I can view those effects through a website provided by the service provider
I have particular issues with ENUM values that I must send because I have no idea of the allowed values (they are always passed as strings)
No documentation has been provided for this service.
I am relatively new to RESTful services and JSON and would like to know whether this is truly a restful service, and if not why not?
Due to my lack of experience in this area I may have omitted some important information that would be required to properly answer this question. I will watch the comments closely and try to provide any additional clarification requested
