REST (Representational State Transfer) is a simple, lightweight way to design network applications. It enables clients and network event brokers to communicate using standard HTTP requests. In this section we'll show you how to configure your Solace PubSub+ event broker for a REST messaging service.
REST clients can connect to a Solace PubSub+ appliance using IPv4 or IPv6. To connect using IPv6, the appliance's message-backbone needs to be configured with an IPv6 global unicast or unique local address. For more information on configuring appliance IP interfaces and addresses, refer to Configuring Appliance IP Interfaces.
