Discuses novel application scenarios for REST, highlighting results and challenges encountered in concrete projects
Examines a more advanced approach for those who want to understand the ongoing research activities around advancing and extending REST
Presents actual applications and real-world concerns
This book serves as a starting point for people looking for a deeper principled understanding of REST, its applications, its limitations, and current research work in the area and as an architectural style. The authors focus on applying REST beyond Web applications (i.e., in enterprise environments), and in reusing established and well-understood design patterns. The book examines how RESTful systems can be designed and deployed, and what the results are in terms of benefits and challenges encountered in the process. This book is intended for information and service architects and designers who are interested in learning about REST, how it is applied, and how it is being advanced.
