I’ve collected lots of somewhat REST-connected posts in the last two weeks, but somehow can’t seem to find the time to comment … so here’s a quick linkdump:
- Verbs and Interaction patterns, Benjamin Carlyle, including some interesting thoughts on a gateway approach between WS-* and REST
- Mark Nottingham on REST issues, real and imagined — good points, especially regarding URI design. Interesting followups from Don Box and Mark Baker, more followups from Sam Ruby and Don again,
- You are already doing REST, Benjamin Carlyle again — I’m not sure I agree REST architectures are simpler, in fact I believe “REST is easy” is the wrong sales pitch in the long run; other than that, another great post
- Lots and lots of posts on the human-vs.-machine argument: from Sanjiva, Mark Baker, Don Box
- Finally! A ROA maturity model! Hilarious stuff from Pete Lacey again.
- Mark Baker celebrates 7 years of WS-* bashing. Congratulations!
- Google has announced WADL tools (via Marc Hadley). Wow.
- Steve Maine comments Elliotte Rusty Harold’s PUT vs. Update article.
- The REST Triangular Pyramid, Carlyle again, you know you should be subscribed already, right?
