(Not) Reinventing the WS Stack

Stefan Tilkov,

Yet another excellent post by Pete Lacey. I’m in violent agreement and don’t have much to add; one thing I’ll note is that Mark has convinced me long ago that protocol independence is a bug, not a feature. I assume this is a sentiment shared by many REST proponents — meaning they don’t tend to replace a MOM-based system by a RESTful solution if MOM semantics are what the situation calls for.

“Protocol independence is a bug.” I like that.

Thanks for all the positive feedback.
