A DAY OF REST WITH WCF, ADO.NET DATA SERVICES, AND ASP.NET MVC
Thursday, September 25, 2008
The evolution of the web has seen many changes in patterns and standards for working with services. In a world of AJAX and other lightweight clients, not all services need to be implemented with the bells and whistles that SOAP and its many specifications allow for. And not all services need to be “transport-neutral”. An alternative architectural approach known as REST is well suited for many web-based scenarios. You can implement a RESTful architecture using a variety of current and future Microsoft technologies. But how do you decide which ones are the best choices for your scenarios? This afternoon of technical deep dives helps to answer that question.
