„Can OPC UA be extended to support UA over REST ?“ was one of the most frequently asked questions the OPC Foundation received in specific meetings.
The OPCF technical teams answer was: REST means different things to different people and, depending on the definition, it makes no sense to have a REST interface to access many OPC UA services. That said, OPC UA already does support simple JSON or XML based REST like requests for services when it makes sense. So the claim that OPC UA does not support REST like APIs is not true. OPCF added this capability in 1.04 and there are implementations too.
So OPC Foundation like to promote better existing features – so OPF started preparing a separate “UA over REST” repo in GitHub with documentations early this year.
