APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) are the backbone of modern web development, enabling communication and data exchange between different software systems. Commonly used types of APIs are REST (Representational State Transfer), SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol), and, more recently, GraphQL and AsyncAPI. In this blog, we will dive into the differences between REST and SOAP APIs, exploring their functionality, security, performance, and ease of use.
