REST Screen

By vilhena on 5 Sep 2013
Create a REST Screen on a Flow.
That Screen does not allow to drag any widget (its a empty page).
On that Rest Screen i can create actions that map to a Action on a Rest Api.
The URI translates on the API for .../<ScreenName>/<ActionName>.
The platform haddles the secutity, handles the JSON serialization.

With the REST Screen, we can implement one api that JQuery plugins and javascript integration can be done easy.

In Platform 9 Amsterdam you have the ability to expose REST APIs. These APIs can be used to expose services to visual widgets. REST APIs are stateless and separate from the UI session. Authentication/authorization needs to be done "on the side" to make sure that that entry point cannot be jeopardized by external requests.
