REST Eye for the SOA Guy
In a presentation recorded at QCon San Francisco, CORBA guru Steve Vinoski introduces REST from the perspective of a traditional SOA person. He explains the goals of the various constraints REST imposes, and the desirable properties one can gain from adhering to them. In a hypothetical discussion with a "SOA guy", Steve addresses various frequent doubts people express when they first look at REST.
