"This book illuminates the connection of the two domains--SOA and REST--in a manner that is concrete and practical, providing concise application to everyday architectural challenges. Fantastic!"

--Ryan Frazier, Technology Strategist, Microsoft

"...a tour de force that elegantly applies REST principles to the industry-standard SOA framework described in prior titles in this series.... This book is a must-read for anyone developing REST services."

--Dave Slotnick, Enterprise Architect, Rackspace Hosting

"This book undoubtedly will help SOA to reap the benefits from the main value propositions of Web architecture...."

--Dr. Erik Wilde, Architect, EMC Corporation

"REST is so much more than just another type of interface implementation--SOA with REST shows how the ecosystem of service compositions changes as new opportunities arise for service composition architecture designs. A comprehensive guide and a must-read for any serious IT architect considering REST-style services for application architectures."

--Roger Stoffers, Solution Architect, Hewlett Packard

"Service-orientation and REST both are architectural styles that are cornerstones of modern applications and cloud computing. Both aim to deliver scalable, interoperable solutions, but their different roots don't always make them a natural fit. SOA with REST explains how the two styles can work together in enterprise environments. It discusses a design process for a services portfolio that meets the goals of SOA and at the same time designs services that comply with the established REST constraints. It also shows pragmatic approaches to meet enterprise-grade requirements with the REST programming style but relaxes constraints where necessary."

--Christoph Schittko, Director of Cloud Strategy, Microsoft

"An excellent repertoire of service-oriented patterns that will prove handy when solving problems in the real world. The REST perspectives and principles will provide complete coverage of modern-day Web 2.0 style approaches. Highly recommended."

--Sid Sanyal, IT Architect, Zurich Financial Services

"An inspirational book that provides deep insight into the design and development of next-generation service-oriented systems based on the use of REST. This book clarifies the convergence of SOA and REST with no-nonsense content that addresses common questions and issues head-on. An essential 'instrument of modern service implementation' and a powerful body of knowledge for software designers, architects, and consultants."

--Pethuru Raj, Ph.D., Enterprise Architecture (EA) Consultant, Wipro Consulting Services

"REST and SOA are two of the most misunderstood terms in the software industry over the past decade. Yet the REST architectural style coupled with modern RESTful framework implementations provides a scalable and reliable approach to SOA. This book covers all you need to know about how to take the principles of REST and apply them in small and large SOA developments. If you are familiar with REST and thinking about SOA, then you need this book. If you have not considered REST in your SOA work, then this book is for you, too. Covering concepts of both REST and SOA, as well as design patterns and when to use them, the book is a wonderful companion and a good tool for architects and engineers."

--Dr. Mark Little, CTO JBoss, Red Hat

"Unlike many other texts on the subject, SOA with REST is a well-rounded, easy-to-read narrative, including real-world case studies that appeal to both developers and analysts. This makes it an indispensable source for any SOA practitioner or any professional who is planning to initiate an SOA project."

--Theodore T. Morrison, Certified SOA Analyst, CSM, Geocent, LLC

"SOA and REST are two very important architectural styles for distributed computing. SOA is successfully adopted by most enterprises, and the REST style is getting more attention from both researcher and industry users. The book SOA with REST introduces a new architectural style that is ingeniously combining both SOA and REST styles and clearly reveals how SOA and REST can work together to generate successful enterprise SOA strategies with REST, along with guidance for making architecture design decisions. This book is a bible of best practices for designing and implementing SOA architecture with REST. It is a must-have reference book for both IT practitioners and researchers."

--Longji Tang, FedEx IT Senior Technical Advisor, Ph.D. in CSSE

The Definitive Guide to Building Web-Centric SOA with REST

The World Wide Web is based on the most successful technology architecture in history. It has changed how we view, access, and exchange information and, with the advent of REST, it has also provided us with compelling ways to build and improve automation solutions. REST provides a great deal of guidance to ensure that an architecture and its automation logic are technically sound, though it is still your responsibility to build services that actually add value to your business.

SOA with REST is the first comprehensive tutorial and reference for designing and building RESTful services as part of service-oriented solutions and in conjunction with service-oriented architecture (SOA). This book demonstrates that REST is not only a suitable medium for building truly service-oriented solutions, but also that the service-oriented architectural model is a necessary foundation for REST technology architectures to realize their full business potential.

The authors provide thorough mapping of REST constraints and architectural goals with service-orientation principles and SOA characteristics. Using real-world examples, they show how to leverage REST's simplicity, flexibility, and low overhead without compromising the power or manageability of service-oriented solutions and architectures.

This book will be valuable to IT architects, developers, and any practitioner seeking to use SOA and REST together.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book illuminates the connection of the two domains--SOA and REST--in a manner that is concrete and practical, providing concise application to everyday architectural challenges. Fantastic!"

--Ryan Frazier, Technology Strategist, Microsoft

"SOA can be done in many different ways, and REST has become the most visible newcomer in the space of potential implementation frameworks. This book illustrates what architects and developers need to know about RESTful SOA and most importantly drives home the main point that REST makes as a style for SOA: It is all about designing service ecosystems and providing clients an easy way to use resources in those ecosystems and even connect them across individual services. This book undoubtedly will help SOA to reap the benefits from the main value propositions of Web architecture: decentralization, loose coupling, connectedness, self-describing services, and service interfaces that are independent from service implementations."

--Dr. Erik Wilde, Architect, EMC Corporation

"SOA with REST is a tour de force that elegantly applies REST principles to the industry-standard SOA framework described in prior titles in this series. The book provides useful guidance to practitioners while staying true in form and spirit to the REST constraints defined in Roy Fielding's thesis. The chapters on RESTful contract design in and of themselves justify the cost of purchase. This book is a must-read for anyone developing REST services."

--Dave Slotnick, Enterprise Architect, Rackspace Hosting

"The book is a must-read for any IT architect or software engineer who wants to gain a deep understanding of the principles, patterns, and implementation concepts that pertain to building REST-based applications for service-oriented architectures. It goes well beyond fundamental topics to explore the relationship between REST and various specific SOA principles and patterns."

--Sanjay Singh, Certified SOA Architect, Development Manager, NorthgateArinso

"An authoritative, well-written reference for enterprise architects, analysts, developers, and others. This book shows not only the elegance, simplicity, and versatility of REST, it also gives us a clear understanding of how REST synergizes with SOA and service-orientation, how REST can impact SOA design goals, how we can design and develop REST services, and how we can address the unique challenges of integrating RESTfulness into service-orientation. This book is required reading for anyone who desires technical mastery of building service-oriented architectures with REST."

--Philip Wik, MSS Technology

"This is a comprehensive and fundamental book to understand how to employ REST in service-oriented architectures. The many examples provided and the patterns described will be an invaluable help to any practitioner interested in service orientation."
