Are You Building RESTian Web Services?

Would you like to speak to a reporter about it? I’m speaking to one sometime this week, and curiously enough he’d like to also speak to someone using the technology, rather than just spouting off about it 🙂 If you’re that guy or gal, drop me a post or an email and I’ll pass along the info. No guarantees you’ll get contacted, but I’ll make sure he gets the info.


  1. I had a discussion with someone the other day about using REST instead of SOAP in enterprise software (as opposed to consumer software – Flickr, blogger – where it's wide-spread and accepted).

    In the end, the position was essentially that SOAP had more clout and positive reputation and, was, thus, better than what seemed like the toy-ish REST. I don't believe this myself, but I can easily understand how that view previals and seems correct. My feel is that sky-high architects really like SOAP, and the end of the line coders like REST more. It's a weird (all to typical) breakout.

    So…I kind of lost track of my original point…but..it'd be interesting to hear more about REST being used in non-[Flickr|blogger|del.icio.us|etc.] apps.

  2. you're talking to some of the same (or similar) folks i am, it would appear. i've heard similar commentary many times and actually just talked to a reporter about them today. i'm constantly on the lookout for good examples (XMLHTTPRequest i think is one promising area to mine), and will hopefully aggregate some of them soon. meantime, if anybody runs across any good examples, please ping them my way.

  3. meant to say another reporter in the comment above.
