Error 404--Not Found

Error 404--Not Found

From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:

10.4.5 404 Not Found

The server has not found anything matching the Request-URI. No indication is given of whether the condition is temporary or permanent.

If the server does not wish to make this information available to the client, the status code 403 (Forbidden) can be used instead. The 410 (Gone) status code SHOULD be used if the server knows, through some internally configurable mechanism, that an old resource is permanently unavailable and has no forwarding address.

REST (Representational State Transfer)

An architectural style for Web services in which core Internet technologies, in particular, HTTP (and its PUT, GET, POST and DELETE operators), are used to exchange data. For example, a URL could be used to represent the location of a particular set of data to be acessed by a Web service. This contrasts with RPC-based systems, such as SOAP or XML-RPC, which use their own syntax for describing the location of information.
