22nd of May, 2012 Bookmark and Share
Merchants want to take the advantage of bringing all the applications under one roof in order to ensure that they take maximum advantage of their e-commerce website. Moreover, integrating these applications within Magneto in a fast and secure way is the main concern for the merchants. In order to facilitate the integration of business applications in a better way Magento has introduced the REST API in its Magento Enterprise 1.12 and Magento Community 1.7 versions.

The best part of REST API is that it is simple, easy to test and troubleshoot. Its performance is noteworthy and it helps in easy management of customers, customer addresses, sales orders, inventories and products using HTTP verbs such as GET, POST, PUT and DELETE. Considering the REST API feature it would be a good option to upgrade your existing Magento store to the new version. The resources that are supported in the community edition include products, product categories, product websites, customers, customer addresses, inventory, sales orders, sales order items, sales order addresses and sales order comments.

Mr. Paresh, the Project Manager at OpenXcell says, “It is always a pleasure working on the Magento projects because we see Magento getting better and more robust every time they bring the upgraded version”. He adds “The constant involvement from Magento community and the improvements based on the customer feedback are the reasons which contribute to the success of magento”.
