REpresentational State Transfer (REST)

REST is basically a design philosophy for the Web. It was formally introduced by Roy Fielding as a way to explain what made the Web so successful, especially in terms of its simplicity and scalability. REST has recently resurfaced due to the current XML boom. With new technologies like XML-RPC, SOAP, etc. coming down the pipeline, REST advocates are working to ensure that these technologies embrace and use what REST has to offer.

To see what REST is all about, check out the following links. Over time, I hope to augment this information with my own contributions, musings, etc. In the meantime, though...

If you have any other links that you think should be on this list, please e-mail them to me.
