Powerful Open Source RESTRequest4Delphi Makes REST Easy In Delphi

REST is one of the main models that has been described by Roy Fielding, one of the principal creators of the HTTP protocol, in his Ph.D. thesis and adopted as the model to be used in the evolution of the HTTP protocol architecture.

The Embarcadero REST Library is accessible for all platforms, supported by Delphi. RESTRequest4Delphi is a wrapper around the built in components.

The framework focuses on JSON as the representation format. The XML format is not supported.
