About this book

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.

About the authors

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The editors have now joined forces with Rosa Alarcon to deliver this new book that focuses on advanced research topics and practical applications of REST. … it is surely a useful resource for those involved in the development of information systems and in the conduction of research centered on the REST architectural style.” (Alessandro Berni, Computing Reviews, June, 2014)
