Step 6: Provide information about your service

You must provide information about the services offered by your application to the developers of the Web services client applications that will interact with your server.

Information that the client application developer will need to know:
  • The names of the resources or functions, and the query parameters and arguments to use with them.
  • What media type the server expects for receiving, and then delivering, the message body (such as "JSON" or "XML").
  • The HTTP method the server is expecting (such as "GET")
