03. Named Resource and Actions
# Named Resource and Actions API
This API example demonstrates how to name a resource and its actions, to give
the reader a better idea about what the resource is used for.
# My Message [/message]
OK, `My Message` probably isn't the best name for our resource but it will do
for now. Note the URI `/message` is enclosed in square brackets.
## Retrieve a Message [GET]
Now this is informative! No extra explanation needed here. This action clearly
retrieves the message.

## Update a Message [PUT]
`Update a message` - nice and simple naming is the best way to go.
+ Request (text/plain)
All your base are belong to us.
