In the previous how-to, making a single REST API call is illustrated.
In this how-to, "single” is replaced by "multiple” in various ways:
- A single service can be provided by different servers. For instance from different regions. Each server has its own service URL.
- A single service URL, can provide multiple methods. For instance, a method to find the geolocation (lat, lon) for an address, and another one, given a geolocation, finding an address.
- A single request can have multiple answers. For instance, try searching for “Market square”.
- A single method can be queried multiple times. For instance, searching the geolocations for multiple addresses.
- An organization may offer multiple pricing plans, each one with its own limit on the number of queries per time period. Often this starts with a free of charge plan, whereby only a few queries per time period are allowed.
