This class can be used to implement a REST API server with MySQLi based CRUD operations.

It provides a base class that can connect to a MySQL database server using MySQLi and execute basic CRUD operations like creating, retrieving, updating and deleting records from a given table.

The REST server class itself extends the base CRUD class and processes requests looking for the requested API function. It dispatches the request if the function exists, or return a 404 response if it does not exist.

The REST class can also retrieve the request parameter data for HTTP GET, POST, PUT and DELETE methods, as well process the API call response setting the appropriate headers and HTTP status.

Applications implementing the API just need to extend the REST server class and implement the supported API calls as class methods.

A demonstration API class is provided to show how to implement a API to manage users with records stored in a database.
