What is the difference between web api get and post



Mar 8 2017 6:12 AM
normally we know for get request data pass as query string and for post data pass as form collection.

but in web api i have seen people use get when they fetch data from server side to client side and
when people send data to insert or update then they use post but i do not know the reason why.

so if anyone know can then plzz explain why get is used to fetch data and post is used to save data.

i guess we can code in such a way post can fetch data and get can be used to post data but we never do this why?

please share the reason in details. thanks
