REST and Spring

, Mar 9, 2009

Arjen Poutsma on REST support in Spring MVC 3.0:

In the last couple of years, REST has emerged as a compelling alternative to SOAP/WSDL/WS-*-based distributed architectures. So when we started to plan our work on the next major release of Spring - version 3.0, it was quite clear to us that we had to focus on making the development of ‘RESTful’ Web services and applications easier.

I think it’s great to see REST support appear where it belongs – in the Web framework.
