Course Description

Data models are the language of REST APIs, so a consistent approach to data model formatting and validation, as well as choosing the appropriate strategy for inter-API communications using data models, can unlock the potential of your REST APIs. This approach makes them more effective and useable.

In this course, you'll distinguish the differences between XML and JSON and demonstrate how to serialize objects to XML and JSON format. Next, you'll learn how to create a JSON model and validate it for Web API. Finally, you'll classify the differences between public and private APIs and illustrate how to connect to and consume REST APIs.
