Apache Mesos Executor HTTP REST API v1 - How To

Mesos, a project of the Apache Software Foundation, is a product of similar principles that are applied in the construction of Linux kernel. But Mesos kernel features additional functionalities such as unlimited compatibility with machines and provision of a variety of resource management and scheduling APIs. The Apache Mesos Executor HTTP API supports the construction of applications that run and implement computing tasks, process, or jobs for the Apache Mesos platform. The RESTful API makes it possible for developers to deploy HTTP requests as substitute for C++ or native client libraries when building Mesos Executor applications. The HTTP requests actually facilitate interactions between a custom executor and a Mesos agent. The API accepts strictly HTTP POST requests, usually encoded in JSON format, and returns responses in JSON format as well.
