In the code-on-demand style, a client component has access to a set of resources, but not the know-how on how to process them. It sends a request to a remote server for the code representing that know-how, receives that code, and executes it locally.
The above quote comes from the infamous thesis by Roy Fielding which kicked off REST.
It’s almost as if the web were designed for this stuff.
