If the things in the internet of things (IOT) are viewed as providing web services then the developed protocols and standards for online web services can be implemented on embedded devices, like the Arduino and allow for seamless integration with other web apps. Two standout methods for accessing and providing web services are REST and XML. REST is used to issue the ‘command’ to the web service and can be as simple as a URL. XML can be used to represent the information that the service provides and is an easily machine readable format.
