RESTful Web Services Overview
The RESTful web services are based on the REST architecture. You can use the RESTful web services to search records, to get a list of records in a cluster, and to ingest streaming data.
Before you use the RESTful web services, you must package them in a web application archive (WAR) file, which is a packaged JAR file. After you package the web services in a WAR file, deploy them on a Tomcat container.
