31 31  "An important concept in REST is the existence of resources (sources of specific information), each of which is referenced with a global identifier (e.g., an URI in HTTP). In order to manipulate these resources, components of the network (user agents and origin servers) communicate via a standardized interface (e.g., HTTP) and exchange representations of these resources (the actual documents conveying the information)."

33 -Resources in XWiki are pages, attachments, objects, properties, spaces, and all the //things// we described in the previous section. XWiki has a default way of conveying the information about these resources, i.e., by providing well defined XML representations that contain all the information associated to the resource in an XML format. This format is described using an XML Schema Definition file that can be found [[here>>https://github.com/xwiki/xwiki-platform/blob/master/xwiki-platform-core/xwiki-platform-rest/xwiki-platform-rest-model/src/main/resources/xwiki.rest.model.xsd]].
