6547verbs in a PUT request?
- Sep 7, 2006While I am sold on REST architecture (and feel like I have been
wasting years of my life in the SOAP rope-a-dope), I am only starting
to learn proper resource modeling especially within certain
application scenarios. The REST Wiki has been very helpful - thanks.
When it comes to identifying things which try to be or resemble REST
but they really are not, I am still green.
I am really keen on RIA/AJAX solutions which isolate the presentation
layer on the client/browser and integrate with resources the REST way.
On the other hand, I am pretty sure I am not seeing REST in all these
sessioned, distributed presentation client-server sync solutions which
operate Http micro-middleware between AJAX engines and server-side
presentation frameworks. As visually compelling as the Echo2 demos
are, this debuggable demo
shows the micro-middleware which is syncing the AJAX Engine with the
server and it doesn't strike me as being REST or web scale. It looks
like traffic you might see trussing a socket between an X client and
server and its clearly stateful.
Sometimes I do find what I am looking for, a client side only
but I notice it says
"issues an AJAX XmlHttpRequest PUT to send the changes to the server.
The PUT request has a list of "commands" that the server should
perform to make the necessary modifications".
This is not REST (not that the site says it is). This is an RPC
protocol using JSON format. Correct?
