Architecture and Concepts
The VINquery.com web services exposes via representational state transfer (REST) for client applications to access a suite of VIN decoding, machine learning and object recognition algorithms.
One distinguishing characteristic of the REST architecture is that communications between a client and a server are stateless. Requests are initiated by the client, the server processes
the request, returns a response, and the entire transaction is considered atomic. This documentation provides the technical description of the real-time web services provided by VINquery.com.
To maintain reliability and stability within our demo and production environments, VINquery.com operates
with certain API call efficiency guidelines. To ensure effective load balance we continually monitor the
API calls to our backend systems and we will contact developers that are putting unnecessary burden
on the system. Applications are not allowed to poll for service status more than once every 15 minutes.
