Carlyle : REST (for SOArchitects)

2008-12-24 @ 01:55#

Benjamin Carlyle has a new post that describes REST from the standpoint of SOA practitioners. the quote below sets the stage:

REST is a state of the art technology for service-orientation and related disciplines. It and its related architectures define a set of constraints that support the principles of

  • Standardised Service Contract,
  • Service Loose Coupling,
  • Service Abstraction,
  • Service Reusability,
  • Service Autonomy,
  • Service Statelessness,
  • Service Discoverability, and
  • Service Composability.

what follows is an excellent description of REST constraints and their impact on implementing and designing Web applications.

thanks, Benjamin!
