The REST API allows you to expose RESTful interfaces and mediate RESTful invocations by mapping REST concepts to SOAP via proxy services. You can also use the WSO2 ESB REST API to configure REST endpoints in the ESB by directly specifying HTTP verbs (such as POST and GET), URI templates, and URL mappings. Alternatively, you can use the HTTP Endpoint to define REST endpoints using URI templates. REST APIs are available over the HTTP and HTTPS transports.
