The primary attraction for IT developers is to rebuild applications by reusing the existing ones. Time to market of these products is very significant for enterprises in order to be competitive in the market. Every system uses resources, such as Web pages, business information, etc. that can be represented in a computer-based system, and the main purpose of IT department is to provide to its clients an easy access to these resources. Service architects and developers are interested to create services that are easy to implement, maintain and are extensible, and scalable. It is the RESTful design that promises this and a lot more. It has been more than a decade since the introduction of REST, and it seems to become one of the most important technologies for Web applications. Every major development language now includes frameworks for building RESTful Web services. Seeing the importance of REST while reusing services, we have conducted a survey, which relies upon collection of empirical data with an aim to explore developers’ experience on REST Architecture in IT Companies. In addition factors that influence toward the use of REST Architecture are presented and evaluated. The paper introduces results of the survey only from IT companies in Macedonia since many IT companies in region that we have contacted were not willing to answer to the questionnaire.
