You’ve built web sites that can be used by other people. But can you build web sites that are usable by machines? The World Wide Web isn’t just a big distributed application—it’s a platform for distributed computing. Web services, mashups, and Ajax applications all use the Web as a 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 explains 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.
RESTful Web Services:
RESTful Web Services 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.
