InfoQ: WS-I closes its doors. What does this mean for WS-*?

So the question remains: has interoperability pretty much been achieved for WS-* through WS-I and the improvements made with the way in which the specifications and standards are developed today, or has the real interoperability challenge moved elsewhere, still to be addressed?


InfoQ: REST and transactions?

[...] there seems to be no clear answer to whether or not (extended) transactions really do fit in a REST world. However, it does seem conclusive that many people believe they need them for one reason or another.


SOAP sur un terrain glissant...

SOA is Dead

SOA was supposed to reduce costs and increase agility on a massive scale. Except in rare situations, SOA has failed to deliver its promised benefits. After investing millions, IT systems are no better than before.


Describe REST Web services with WSDL 2.0

A key component of a Web service is a formal description with Web Services Description Language (WSDL). Until recently there was no formal language to describe REpresentational State Transfer (REST) Web services—now there's WSDL 2.0.

InfoQ: Hypermedia in RESTful applications

Flickr's current approach of requiring that clients possess Flickr-specific knowledge in order to progress from one application state to another, is simply another way of saying that they have a proprietary application model. Not only is it proprietary th

REST vs. SOAP at Amazon

Amazon has both SOAP and REST interfaces to their web services, and 85% of their usage is of the REST interface. Despite all of the corporate hype over the SOAP stack, this is pretty compelling evidence that developers like the simpler REST approach.

I think we had one person inquire about using the SOAP version of the API. I don't know if any apps were actually built. There is at least one application built on XML-RPC. But all the others--I don't even know how many there are--are built on the REST AP

Le plus gros défaut de REST, c'est sûrement de se limiter à la comparaison des 4 verbes HTTP (GET, POST, PUT et DELETE) aux 4 actions possibles sur des données issues de bases de données (Retrieve, Create, Update et Delete soit CRUD)

Pete Lacey’s Weblog :: What is SOA?

Once again the participants in the SOA discussion group have got themselves all riled up about what exactly SOA is and why it may or may not be working.

REST vs. WS-*: War is Over (If You Want It) :: David Chappell :: Blog

by 1 other
REST is for data-oriented applications that focus on create/read/update/delete scenarios. Solution based on WS-* for service/method-oriented applications, especially those that need more advanced behaviors such as transactions and more-than-basic security

The hidden battle between web services: REST versus SOAP

by 2 others (via)
Almost everyone has at least heard of SOAP. Few people have heard of REST. But both are jockeying for the mindshare of developers trying solve problems building applications on the web. REST by virtue of existing, and SOAP largely by virtue of backing by software vendors and standards bodies.


This paper is about a service bus, a really simple one. What we will describe is a service bus based on RSS, or Really Simple Syndication: a simple protocol for disseminating news on the Internet which has been especially successful in the blogging world. RSS is a basic structure, or protocol for producing information feeds, usually consisting of news headlines. Many people will say that there is nothing enterprise about RSS, and indeed it is often assumed that RSS is too simple to be useful for anything but news.

WS-Transfer for WCF (Indigo) - The Code Project - SOAP and XML

A WS-Transfer interaction is based on the REST architectural style (it looks like its SOAP implementation) where four interfaces can handle the creation and operation of the resource state. There is a CRUD (Create/Retrieve/Update/Delete) style in the resource state, the same way it is in the database layer - database record.

Radovan Janecek: Nothing Impersonal: Mental Exercise

Is HTTP GET/POST enough for you? Fine. Then you are simply not the 'right target' for web services evangelists ;-)

Radovan Janecek: Nothing Impersonal: WS-Transfer and WS-Enumeration

The WS-Transfer one is nice because it allows REST style of interactions.

Radovan Janecek: Nothing Impersonal: September 2004 Archives

Will there be still 97% of simple REST services on the web then? Yes, sure. WS-* does not compete with browser-oriented applications or simple-get-then-do-regexp interactions
