Publisher Comments:

"Every developer working with the Web needs to read this book." — David Heinemeier Hansson, creator of the Rails framework

"RESTful Web Services finally provides a practical roadmap for constructing services that embrace the Web, instead of trying to route around it." — Adam Trachtenberg, PHP author and EBay Web Services Evangelist

You've built web sites that can be used by humans. But can you also build web sites that are usable by machines? That's where the future lies, and that's what RESTful Web Services shows you how to do. The World Wide Web is the most popular distributed application in history, and Web services and mashups have turned it into a powerful distributed computing platform. But today's web service technologies have lost sight of the simplicity that made the Web successful. They don't work like the Web, and they're missing out on its advantages.

This book puts the "Web" back into web services. It shows how you can connect to the programmable web with the technologies you already use every day. The key is REST, the architectural style that drives the Web. This book:

  • Emphasizes the power of basic Web technologies — the HTTP application protocol, the URI naming standard, and the XML markup language
  • Introduces the Resource-Oriented Architecture (ROA), a common-sense set of rules for designing RESTful web services
  • Shows how a RESTful design is simpler, more versatile, and more scalable than a design based on Remote Procedure Calls (RPC)
  • Includes real-world examples of RESTful web services, like Amazon's Simple Storage Service and the Atom Publishing Protocol
  • Discusses web service clients for popular programming languages
  • Shows how to implement RESTful services in three popular frameworks — Ruby on Rails, Restlet (for Java), and Django (for Python)
  • Focuses on practical issues: how to design and implement RESTful web services and clients
This is the first book that applies the REST design philosophy to real web services. It sets down the best practices you need to make your design a success, and the techniques you need to turn your design into working code. You can harness the power of the Web for programmable applications: you just have to work with the Web instead of against it. This book shows you how.

Synopsis:

This easy-to-understand reference shows how to use the Representational StateTransfer Web architecture, or REST, to provide services over the Web that arefundamentally simple, both for producers and the consumers.

Synopsis:

REST continues to gain momentum as the best method for building web services, leaving many web architects to consider whether and how to include this approach in their SOA and SOAP-dominated world. This book offers a down-to-earth explanation of REST, with techniques and examples that show you how to design and implement integration solutions using the REST architectural style. Explore several web communications approaches, and discover what makes REST different Walk through the pros and cons of the RESTful approach Learn how the underlying architecture of the Web can drastically simplify programming built on top of it View REST in the context of cloud computing and the Semantic Web Understand how hypermedia serves as a model for computers to process data

Synopsis:

Why don't typical enterprise projects go as smoothly as projects you develop for the Web? Does the REST architectural style really present a viable alternative for building distributed systems and enterprise-class applications?

In this insightful book, three SOA experts provide a down-to-earth explanation of REST and demonstrate how you can develop simple and elegant distributed hypermedia systems by applying the Web's guiding principles to common enterprise computing problems. You'll learn techniques for implementing specific Web technologies and patterns to solve the needs of a typical company as it grows from modest beginnings to become a global enterprise.

  • Learn basic Web techniques for application integration
  • Use HTTP and the Webs infrastructure to build scalable, fault-tolerant enterprise applications
  • Discover the Create, Read, Update, Delete (CRUD) pattern for manipulating resources
  • Build RESTful services that use hypermedia to model state transitions and describe business protocols
  • Learn how to make Web-based solutions secure and interoperable
  • Extend integration patterns for event-driven computing with the Atom Syndication Format and implement multi-party interactions in AtomPub
  • Understand how the Semantic Web will impact systems design
