"REST und HTTP: Einsatz der Architektur des Web für Integrationsszenarien"

Stefan Tilkov,

Believe it or not, it seems I forgot to announce the availability of my (German) book on REST on this blog. So if you know German, head over to, consider buying a copy, and (only if you like it, of course) write a favorable review so that sales skyrocket and I become insanely rich. Or something.

Seriously, congratuations!

Congratulations! Like may others, I have the same questions when can I expect an English translation? Is it already on the cards?

Great news! Looking forward to the Enterprise REST chapter. How would you compare your book to Ruby&Richardson’s? (regarding the contents, not the quality ;-) )
