A very insightful and good set of articles. Thank you
A suggestion - could you add some support for sharing on your BLOG (eg. DIGG / Twitter / Facebook)?

Dr. M. Elkstein said...

Hello Divya,

Done. Thanks for the advice.

Thank you for this concise and informative tutorial.
I like the fact that simplicity (KISS) is becoming a major paradigm in IT: REST, POJOs, Google's services, latest iterations of operating systems...

Thanks for the great little "walk-through" of what REST is all about.

Hi Doc, That was a nice place for me to start with ReST. I've been searching net for the exact 'meaning' of this stuff. Now you have explained it in pretty simple manner. I have a small suggestion. In the example section you have mentioned only about how to make ReST requests. As you have explained earlier a simple URL in a browser can also be a request. The samples are just to make them programaticaly. What i would really like to understand is that how am i going to host a ReSTful service. Normal WS would end up in SOAP and other stuff. Do i need to have my own Http handlers and/or Http Modules for this? Can you please throw some light on this?

Hello James,

Indeed, I have written little about the server-side part of REST, seeing that it is no different than "regular" web serving (except that the output is to be consumed by machines, not people). I see now that more and more people ask for this extension, and I plan to write about it in the (hopefully near) future.

I want it to be understandable by most of the people, my site will powered by Google translator, so any person who know only Russian or Spanish can also read very easily.

Dr. Elkstein,

It was a pleasure to read your tutorial. Just enough content to get a very solid handle on the concepts without being over inundated with specific implementation details.

Armed with the knowledge provide I feel confident and comfortable about architecting restful services.
