SOAP sur un terrain glissant...


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.

O'Reilly Network -- Stewart Butterfield on Flickr

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

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

Station-service: Services Web BizTalk Server 2006 -- MSDN Magazine, March 2007

Forrester narrows list of specs for Web services

"The place to really watch, if you're a conservative watcher and you don't want to watch much in the industry about these emerging specifications is WS-I," he said. "It's putting together answers to technical questions that people need answered if they want things to work together for Web services interoperability."

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.

Web Services Security Interoperability Using Web Services Enhancement 2.0 and Systinet Server 5.0 for Java

This article shows Interoperability based on OASIS WS-Security 1.0 between Microsoft WSE 2.0 and Systinet Server for Java 5.0. The walkthroughs in this article will take you through all you need to know to configure the two environments for securely signing and encrypting SOAP requests and responses using X509 certificates.

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: 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

Sam Ruby: Tolerance

acceptable levels of tolerance differ depending on whether or not a given operation is safe or not

Ian Foster: Web Fundamentalism

A hallmark of fundamentalism is a desire to apply simple rules ("programs are declarative," "there is no operation but POST", "services are stateless") to all situations. But computing is a large and varied world, with few opportunities for absolutist statements.

to implement Web Services Security with the X.509 Certificate Profile, you also need to implement XML Signature (which includes XML Canonicalization and XML Exclusive Canonicalization) and XML Encryption. To correctly handle imports of WSDL1.1 documents (and validate the traffic they describe), you need to support the entire behemoth that is XML Schema -- in particular if you are attempting to support RPC-oriented SOAP, which informally requires you to support the entire XML Schema Datatypes specification. Don't forget support for SOAP with Attachments, either!

» Amazon's SOA strategy: 'just do it' | Service-Oriented Architecture |

It doesn't matter if a partner uses REST or SOAP, he pointed out. "Our developers don't care if it's REST or SOAP. It's all about customers," he said.

Enterprise Integration Patterns - Patterns Overview

Enterprise integration is a complex field, and there is no simple 'cookbook' answer. Patterns are accepted solutions to recurring problems within a given context. They are abstract enough to apply to most integration technologies, but specific enough to provide hands-on guidance to designers and architects. Patterns also provide a vocabulary for developers to efficiently describe their solution.
