Initiating Requests

There are three methods to initiate requests to the server end:

  • cURL

    cURL is a command line tool used to perform URL operations and transmit information. It can serve as an HTTP client to send HTTP requests to the server end and receive response messages. cURL is suitable for use in API tuning scenarios. For more information about cURL, visit https://curl.haxx.se/.

  • Code

    You can call an API through code to assemble, send, and process requests.

  • REST clients

    Mozilla Firefox and Google provide a graphical browser plug-in for REST clients to send and process requests. For details, see Firefox REST Client and Postman.
