Selecting the Right API for Your Needs: REST vs. GraphQL

API technologies like SOAP, REST, and GraphQL facilitate software development by integrating third-party data and services

APIs allow firms to securely communicate data and provide services to workers, business partners, and users

IBM compare REST and GraphQL APIs and explain how corporations may optimise their networks

They shape and size client resources based on a media type or MIME type

HTTP response codes include “200 OK” for successful REST queries and “404 Not Found” for missing resources

The resolver converts GraphQL queries, modifications, and subscriptions into data and fetches it from databases, cloud services, and other sources

GraphQL and REST APIs are resource-based data exchanges that employ HTTP methods like PUT and GET to limit client actions
