RESTSpace

, Dec 22, 2005

Although I have never really used it in a “real” project, I agree with Patrick Logan that JavaSpaces is a great technology that continues to be widely ignored for some reason. Which reminds me — whatever became of the idea of a RESTful XML Space? I can’t I seem to find a single implementation of this obvious idea, apart from Ruple (which seems to be quite dead)?

A RESTful XML space? Look no further; http://base.google.com

I can see it growing into something like this - but with it’s limited API (bulk and FTP upload only), I don’t it qualifies now … or does it?

Upload, download, search. That’s enough in my books!

Amazing … anyway, I still haven’t found a solution for internal usage, which is strange. Maybe it’s too trivial to build to be interesting :-)

I suppose you’ll just have to wait for the Google Base appliance!
