The Web Services specification arena has exploded. Some specifications are W3C, some are OASIS. Some are real, some are important, some are vendor hype, many are incompatible. No wonder people tend to refer to WS-* as WS-Deathstar!
Which one(s) do you really need to know and use? How can your Web services interoperate? In this session, we will explore those issues, with attention paid to development of interoperable Web services for .NET and Java. Perhaps even a surprise language or two.
This session will explore REST and RESTful web services. Such Web services are designed according to Web rules, and are rather different from the typical WS-* Web services that most people are more familiar with. In this session, we will focus on explaining REST, and illustrating the concepts and benefits of RESTful Web services, with examples. We won't be smoking anything, but perhaps we'll turn a few people into RESTafarians.
