Title: RESTful Web Services Cookbook
Author: Subbu Allamaraju
Publisher: Yahoo Press
REST, as we all know, stands for Representational State Transfer. If you’re not one of those in the know, then you might look at the CodeProject page Everything About REST Web Services - What and How for a nice example and practical guidance.
Once you’re past that, assuming that you need to go there in the first place, you might then find yourself asking “How might one find solutions to various web service designs / problems that are written in a RESTful frame of mind?”. Well, look no further as Mr. Allamaraju has provided the answer.
It’s very important to note that this is a cookbook so don’t expect it to hold the answer to every question that you’ve ever formed in your head regarding the web and design. This book exists to help with day-to-day design and implementation questions in the confines of RESTful design for web services.
As such, it is as exciting as any cookbook can be. The author has kindly provided 14 chapters of recipes starting with the basics (Using the Uniform Interface) but covering more advanced and concerning topics such as security.
