TechTalk - RESTful Application Protocols, From Design to Implementation
Challenging the notion that REST is suitable only for simple CRUD-based data services, in this TechTalk Ian Robinson will show how to implement a complex business process as part of a RESTful application. Using techniques drawn from the forthcoming O'Reilly book "REST in Practice", he describes how to model business processes as domain application protocols, implement them in terms of resource lifecycles, and execute them using HTTP idioms, media types and link relation values.
