Today’s quick reference poster looks at REST services and gives a guide to how RESTful (or not) your services are, from level 0 (not restful) to level 4 (using everything). These are not a scientific levels, it is just a simple classification I devised to promote easy communication about the services. The idea for this is to promote thinking about what features to use and assist with communication in a team. It is not a a requirement to always have level 4, some times you just need level 1 and this fine – do not over engineer for the sake of saying you are level 99.
