What is CRUD?
CRUD (Create, Read, Update and Delete) is a common paradigm found in many applications, especially web applications. It includes the set of basic operations that applications allow.
Create adds an object to a datastore, which includes an ID that uniquely identifies it. Read allows you to access an existing object in a datastore through an ID that you specify. Update lets you make changes to an object existing in a datastore through an ID that you specify. Finally, Delete allows you to remove an object from a datastore through an ID that you specify.
It should be noted that not all applications provide all four CRUD operations. Many only provide a subset of them.
CRUD is often discussed within the context of RESTful APIs, as these APIs give web developers the ability to perform a defined set of CRUD operations on remote data stores through HTTP methods. These methods are POST, GET, PUT and DELETE.
