"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.

"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...
