The State of Web Services

Stefan Tilkov,

Tim Ewald:

I don’t think people are embracing REST services because of architectural purity (the rest of the Web isn’t pure REST, so I don’t know why this would be). Rather, they embrace it because it’s easier in a lot of cases. There is no reason that SOAP couldn’t be the same, except that toolkits hide raw XML and you have to know how to get it.

I couldn’t agree more.
