The Web is fast becoming a serious competitor to traditional enterprise architecture approaches. This full day workshop will provide an introduction to RESTful Web Service techniques, both from a theoretical and practical perspective. This full day workshop is broken down as follows: * Introduction and Motivation * The Web Architecture * Simple Web Integration including POX and URI tunnelling * CRUD Services using URI templates and HTTP * Semantics using Microformats and RDF * Hypermedia and the REST architectural style * Scalability and how a text-based client-server polling protocol outperforms everything else! * ATOM and ATOMPub for event-driven and pub/sub applications * Security * Conclusions and further thoughts Participants should be comfortable with distributed computing concepts, but won't need any particular integration or middleware experience.
