Chapter 7. Working with the REST API

In the previous chapter, we provided information regarding the Activiti Process Engine's APIs and how to use the Process Engine's JAR file and APIs. In this chapter, we will work with the Process Engine using the REST service.

In this chapter, we will go through the following topics:
