I am very new to the REST API concepts in PHP domain and I am in a situation to use it.
Can any one please help me by explaining this concept.

Differentiate the REST API with the normal GET and POST method in php.

And also please give me a simple example in php using REST API for displaying the name and age of a person, that is, for example I have the coding to display name and age when the user clicks the submit button using post method.

I need the same example using REST API.

  if( $_POST["name"] || $_POST["age"] )
     echo "Welcome ". $_POST['name']. "<br />";
     echo "You are ". $_POST['age']. " years old.";
  <form action="<?php $_PHP_SELF ?>" method="POST">

  Name: <input type="text" name="name" />
  Age: <input type="text" name="age" />

  <input type="submit" />

Thanks in Advance!!!
Please give me a solution!^
