Shedding

Brian McCallister:

Shedding is a technique Paul, John, and I hashed out (during the recent ApacheCon hackathon) for service lookup in pure HTTP. The problem it tries to solve is resolving where to make a request to if you have a URL, say http://storage.service/session which is a backend service for managing session state in Hypothetical Incorporated.
