Custom API using REST services for a Managed package

Hi people,


I have a requirement where I have to create API's which will then be used for creating/accessing Salesforce records. It has to be a part of a managed package. After reading a few articles, I found out that I can do this using Apex Rest API, ie, creating an endpoint and in that class defining our Get and Post methods that will be used for creating/modifying records.


I have never worked on API's before. So I want to know if this is the right approach? I am not sure because it has to be packaged.


If it is a correct approach, then how should I proceed? If I set up an endpoint, how do I test it? Pleas let me know so that I can proceed with it. Thanks in advance.


There are standard api's available for doing crud operations on records,there's no need to rebuilt that.
