This is a simple ASP.NET Web API that also demonstrates a RESTful api. It will calculate and return lucky lottery numbers based on either a default (api/values/) or custom HTTP Get Request (example: values?name=Kathleen&age=36).
Note: This was one of my very first experimental Web API projects that I completed in only a few hours. I did not add API documentation. I’ve since completed an actual college course on Web API and better/more demo projects will be coming soon.
A RESTful API is an application program interface (API) that uses HTTP requests to GET, PUT, POST and DELETE data. A web API is an application programming interface (API) for either a web server or a web browser. ASP.NET Web API is a framework that makes it easy to build HTTP services that reach a broad range of clients, including browsers and mobile devices. ASP.NET Web API is an ideal platform for building RESTful applications on the .NET Framework.
