A client will provide a REST API and I need to connect to it through a locally installed Matlab (not Matlab Production Server), download and crunch some data and then send the results back.
I don't have experience with this yet so please excuse if I am mixing terms
Right now I am trying to understand which is the relevant documentation for me and there are two options I am looking at;
1) The methods listed here - https://nl.mathworks.com/help/matlab/internet-file-access.html?s_tid=CRUX_lftnav , all relate to a RESTful Web Service. I don't know yet if the client has a REST API that can be categorized as a web service (it will provide some internal client data) - would anybody know what the 'standard' use case for a REST API is and if it will likely be considered as a 'web service'? I guess the 'web' service part refers to the HTTP protocol and it does need to be a website?
However, if I understand it well, the second option is exclusive to MPS (and this is not what we will be using to access the API - we will be using standard Matlab Standalone desktop version)
Appreciate any help and clarifications!
