Apache Mesos Scheduler HTTP API - Developers

Mesos, a project of the Apache Software Foundation, shares the fundamental principles of Linux kernel. But Mesos kernel features additional functionalities such as unlimited compatibility with machines and provisioning of a variety of resource management and scheduling APIs. The Apache Mesos Scheduler HTTP API supports the construction of applications that run and schedule 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 Schedulers. The HTTP requests actually facilitate interactions between a custom scheduler and a Mesos master. The API accepts strictly HTTP POST requests, usually encoded in JSON format, and returns responses in JSON format as well.
