Jean-Jacques Dubray about Data Centric Interfaces:
ebXML BPSS is, I think, a form of “data centric” interfaces. Resources being exchanged are explicitly defined as business documents that are exchanged via document envelopes. […] Of course Paul’s point is about the superiority and simplicity of REST versus SOAP.
I disagree — in a REST scenario, the resources are addressable entities; it’s their representations that are exchanged. I also don’t see SOAP and REST being in any way mutually exclusive.
