930 +Starting from release 4.3M2, the RESTful API modules have been refactored so that now resource declarations are available in a separate module.
931 +This means that all the information about resources, i.e., URI Paths, supported methods, query parameters, and so on, are available to module developers without having to include the big REST Server module.
932 +
933 +Clients willing to access/use the REST API can then declare a dependency on xwiki-platform-rest-api and have all this information available for interacting with it. There are two use cases for this:
934 +* Another platform module that wants to generate responses with links to existing resources.
935 +* HTTP clients that wants to make requests to the RESTful API.
936 +
937 +The xwiki-platform-rest-api module can be also seen as an authoritative reference for the REST API.
