Depending on what you have seen try perhaps https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Representational_state_transfer#Architectural_constraints
In practice all criterias such as https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HATEOAS are not always enforced and "REST" means basically "all you need to know about is HTTP" by opposition to XML-RPC or SOAP based services
where the XML payload describes not only data but also which operations should be done (and so you should use tools or you have another specification such as http://www.w3.org/TR/soap12/ to take into account for
achieving your goal).
