Difference Between Using the Data and Pattern APIs

Rediff API can return XML data or HTML code and scripts. Depending on the nature of the response, the APIs can be classified as:

  • Data API These return the requested information in the XML form. Your App can extract the data from the XML and use it as required.
  • Pattern API These return a result that includes data, presentation, and functionality. For more information about Patterns, refer to the What is a Pattern? section.
