Salesforce.com Finally Adding REST API

Jeremy Glassenberg, October 6th, 2010

Salesforce.comIn an email newsletter to developers, Salesforce.com announced that a REST version of its API is on its way. While Salesforce is yet to provide details into this enhancement, the newsletter acknowledged that it will enable “simple HTTP and JSON as a possible output format, to make integrating with Force.com fast and easy.”

Simple it is, as the ease of development in REST has resulted in REST API usage growing immensely in the past two years, taking a good byte out of SOAP API usage, on which Salesforce.com’s API is currently based.

Salesforce.com will launch its REST API on October 26th as a developer preview. Registration is open to join an introductory webinar that day.

Update: In the comments, Salesforce’s Jon Mountjoy pointed us to a sneak peak of the API with a video (embedded below).

Thanks for the write up Jeremy. I’m looking forward to its release – there are some nice features, including OAuth2 authentication. You can see a preview of it in action in this blog post.

Cheers guys – much appreciated. You inspired me to blog a little bit more about the API – so here’s a look at it in action using cURL on the command line (after the OAuth token generation).
