Chief Architect at Foundation Medicine

In this RESTful Imaginarium you will learn about about the core concepts of REST demonstrated through leading RESTful web service frameworks, Jersey (JAX-RS), Restlet, Spring MVC and NetKernel. During this daydream you will learn about the fallacies of URL parameters, the debate of PUT vs. POST and the power of HATEOAS.

RESTful web services have become the preferred approach to synchronously integrate heterogeneous systems. The REST Architectural Style’s success is due in large part to its simplicity and the fact that it is based based on a small set of widely accepted standards, such as HTTP. Furthermore REST requires far fewer development steps, toolkits and execution engines than conventional SOAP web services.

This session covers the core concepts of REST and then walks through how to design and implement RESTful web services using leading RESTful web service frameworks, Jersey (JAX-RS), Restlet, Spring MVC and NetKernel.
