The purpose of this study is to perform an analysis on a discussion of REST creator Roy Thomas Fielding, where he exposes a critique of implementations that claim to use the architectural model proposed in his thesis. Implementations of APIs that manifest themselves as RESTFUL are used as object of study. Architectural Constraints are used which refer to important features of the model to verify these implementations, where they must succeed in these comparisons with the constraints, so that they can prove to implement the model. The conclusion is that there are in fact several implementations that are improperly named, where they have several similarities to the model in their implementation, but do not agree with the constraints that must be implemented so that it can be considered an instance of the model.
