REST and JSON

REST (REpresentational State Transfer) is a web service architectural style. In general it means that aspects of the HTTP protocol are used to retrieve or manipulate data from a remote system. As in HTTP, a RESTful API is called with the combination of a URL and a verb. The verb POST is used by all operations on the ICEPAY REST API.

JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a notation style to represent complex object structures in a serialized manner (i.e. transferable over the internet). It has the same role as XML, but is much less verbose and therefore faster.
