Design the GET Endpoint for Getting Details of a Specific Product

Understand how the GET method is used to design products API to get the details of a specific product.

Getting details of a specific product

The GET method can also be used to retrieve a specific resource from a collection. In our case, it’ll be a product from a product collection based on the ID of the product. For such a case, GET is used with the URI having a path parameter. The path parameter defines how the resource can be uniquely identified and accessed from the collection. In the product collection, the ID of a product uniquely identifies it. So, the path parameter will be the value of the ID.

The structure of the request header, response header, and response body will be the same as discussed in Design the GET Endpoint for Listing Products.
