Soa with Rest: Principles, Patterns & Constraints for Building Enterprise Solutions with Rest (Prentice Hall Service-Oriented Computing Series from Thomas)by Thomas Erl
Synopses & Reviews
The Definitive Guide to Building Web-Centric SOA with REST
The World Wide Web is based on the most successful technology architecture in the history of IT. It has changed how we view, access, and exchange information and, with the advent of REST, it has also provided us with compelling ways to build and improve automation solutions. REST provides a great deal of guidance to ensure that an architecture and its automation logic are technically sound, but the responsibility of ensuring that what you build actually provides value to the business is yours.
Service-orientation has established a proven method for realizing a specific target state that has proven strategic value to many organizations. Achieving this target state requires that we apply service-orientation to a suitable distributed computing medium. SOA with REST is the first comprehensive tutorial and reference for designing and building RESTful services as part of service-oriented solutions and in conjunction with service-oriented architecture (SOA). This book demonstrates that REST is not only a suitable medium for building truly service-oriented solutions, but also that the service-oriented architectural model is a suitable, and often necessary, foundation for REST technology architectures to realize their full business potential.
The authors provide thorough mapping of REST constraints and architectural goals with service-orientation principles and SOA characteristics. Utilizing real-world examples, they show how to leverage REST’s simplicity, flexibility, and low overhead without compromising the power or manageability of service-oriented solutions and architectures.
This bookwill be valuable to IT architects, developers, and any practitioner seeking to use SOA and REST together.
