RE : Rest API Integration



How can use Rest API in my Salesforce Account....

Please anybody help me..............

I want to connect  with Java environment....................


And I Installed one Package called "Rest Explorer"  How can I Use that...........

Please give me a Quick Response




Anusha - you should start with the REST API Developer's guide.  It has a complete walk through of the API and has some samples for getting started in Java with an HTTP Client and our service endpoint (http://{instance}.salesforce.com/services/data/v21.0/), where instance is something like na7, na5, na9, etc. 




The REST Explorer is a point and click way of seeing and manipulating your data through a tab in Salesforce.  It uses an HttpClient in Apex to connect to the REST API and returns both a formatted response and the raw response.  Use it when you're planning what you'd like your program to do.

Google is your friend:




Most important thing is that you need to support ssl for the callback url.
