RESTful Implementation of IFX Demonstration Design Review Based on IFX Specification Version 2.4 July 2018

This paper describes many of the design decisions we have made and illustrates how to map the IFX Standard messages (methods) to RESTful concepts and HTTP verbs. IFX Objects can be implemented directly as JSON resources, but more work needs to be done for the purposes of APIs to define resources that are not as deeply nested as many of the structures currently defined in the specification.
