It seems that more and more organizations are using lightweight protocols such as REST (representational state transfer) to best leverage their SOA infrastructure. If you’re one of them, you’re going to need to know what REST offers as compared to the more traditional SOAP. SOA with REST: Principles, Patterns & Constraints for Building Enterprise Solutions with REST, a new book from Pearson/Prentice Hall Professional, could be a good first step. We’ve got an excerpt of the book up on the IT Bookworm blog.

Want the whole thing? Just tell us in the comments why you’re considering REST and you’ll be entered to win a copy of the e-book. For more on improving your SOA, visit the SOA Talk blog.

    I'm considering it because I don't know how it can be useful for the kind of work that I do. Sooner or later, just about every technology or methodology that I've ever learned has been useful eventually. As often as not, the usefulness became evident in some totally unexpected way. REST seems to be an accepted "approach" to SOA that will facilitate learning all of the underlying elements. This an alternative to trying to learn by looking at some unknown number of approaches that are sometimes conflicting without knowing why one is better (or correct)  in given circumstances. Learning a widely accepted approach first will give a foundation for looking at conflicting alternatives without all of the confusion at the beginning. -- Tom

    Thanks, Tom. Good idea to learn even if you don't know exactly how something will be useful to you. That's how you stay ahead of the curve.
