2781[rest-discuss] Groove Web Services
- Nov 4, 2002http://www.infoworld.com/articles/pl/xml/02/11/04/021104plgroove.xml
I've just read this article on the upcoming Groove web services
interfaces. It talks about how Groove have tried to create a RESTful
interface using SOAP/WSDL and that the result is an "exceptionally
elegant and productive Web services API".
Then I read that;
"It's all organized as a web of linked XML documents controlled by a
handful of verbs such as Create, Read, Update, and Delete." !
They really seem to have grasped the value of uri-addressable resources
represented in xml, accessed using a small number of standardised methods.
So what did they need SOAP for ?
I have to hope that their next step is to make SOAP optional. Or will
they continue, and start reinventing http-caching.
Any thoughts ?
