Korte samenvatting
In ‘REST in Practice’, Jim Webber explains why typical enterprise projects do not go as smoothly as projects you develop for the Web? Does the REST architectural style really present a viable alternative for building distributed systems and enterprise-class applications? In this insightful book, three SOA experts provide a down-to-earth explanation of REST and demonstrate how you can develop simple and elegant distributed hypermedia systems. Namely by applying the Web’s guiding principles to common enterprise computing problems.

First, you’ll learn techniques for implementing specific Web technologies and patterns to solve the needs of a typical company as it grows from modest beginnings to become a global enterprise. Learn basic Web techniques for application integration. Then you learn to use HTTP and the Web’s infrastructure to build scalable, fault-tolerant enterprise applications. Consequently you discover the Create, Read, Update, Delete (CRUD) pattern for manipulating resources Build RESTful services that use hypermedia to model state transitions and describe business protocols Learn how to make Web-based solutions secure and interoperable Extend integration patterns for event-driven computing with the Atom Syndication Format and implement multi-party interactions in AtomPub Understand how the Semantic Web will impact systems design

Over de auteur
Jim Webber is chief scientist at Neo Technology where he works on future versions of the Neo4j database, so a lot of what he has to say is about graphs, graph theory, scaling graph data and databases, fault-tolerance and distributed systems in general.
This book was EXCELLENT! I loved learning how powerful the HTTP protocol is for APPLICATIONs and not just for data transport. Easy to read with examples and a great sample application, anyone that wants to design agile, powerful and open applications should be using REST and exploiting HTTP to the fullest, otherwise they will be creating needless headaches for themselves. A fantastic book!
