First, let’s get the easy one out of the way. REST is about URLs and HTTP. This part makes sense to most people right away. Hitting a URL is something that can easily be done from almost any language or programming environment; it’s extremely transparent (and thereby discoverable and easy to debug) due to the simple nature of URLs and the fact that you can use a web browser to do simple testing; and using HTTP as the transport gives benefits like virtual hosts, easy proxying, and doesn’t require running a separate daemon besides your webserver. In short, REST is the web, and this makes it vastly easier to use than the various RPC protocols whose corpses now litter the highway of software history.
