Apache Mesos API - How To

The Apache Mesos API is designed to accommodate wide varieties of framework languages that developers use in the development of applications. The RPC-based API expands the language scope of driver-based framework APIs and simplifies the development protocols of REST-based HTTP APIs. The other interesting functionality of the API is that it has eliminated the need of opening connections back to client-side servers as a requirement for communicating with it.

Developers can also deploy the new HTTP functionality of the Apache Mesos API on experimental basis when streaming events. The API is a full release that is well documented. It sends requests in URI Query String/CRUD format and returns JSON-formatted responses.
