Breakthrough approach, breakthrough techniques: the first comprehensive tutorial and reference for deploying RESTful services to support SOA • •SOA and REST have been viewed as radically different paradigms: this is the first book to show how they can be combined to solve crucial problems and deliver greater business value. •Presents comprehensive case studies of the highly successful integration of contemporary REST frameworks and SOA platforms. •Covers both the theory and practice of RESTful services in the SOA context. Every major development platform now supports the creation of SOA-based solutions. Increasingly, however, the traditional, SOAP-based method of building SOA services has been challenged by a simpler, lighter alternative: REST. The two paradigms have sometimes been viewed as competitive, and many developers are comfortable with one or the other, but not both. However, REST and SOA can be used together - and, as this start-to-finish tutorial demonstrates, organizations can achieve powerful benefits by combining them. Renowned SOA expert Thomas Erl and IBM Consulting IT Architect Raj Balasubramanian begin by explaining the theory and techniques underlying REST, and then introducing real-life implementations of RESTful services using multiple contemporary technologies. The authors compare REST and service-oriented principles, showing how traditional Web services and RESTful services differ, and dispelling common myths and misconceptions about REST and SOA. Next, they present a series of REST-inspired SOA design patterns, supported by case studies that demonstrate how REST and SOA can be converged using existing technologies and products, and what the benefits are of doing so. Thomas Erl (Richmond BC) founded SOA Systems Inc., a company specializing in vendor-agnostic SOA training, certification, and strategic consulting services. Erl speaks and instructs widely, and has delivered many workshops and keynote speeches. His work has been published in publications including The Wall Street Journal. Raj Balasubramanian (Cedar Creek TX), Consulting IT Architect for IBM Software Group, works on customer engagements delivering application and infrastructure-related projects. As co author of an upcoming SOA with Java book, he contributed chapters on portal technology and REST service design and development. He recently developed REST patterns for, SOA Design Patterns.

"This book illuminates the connection of the two domains--SOA and REST--in a manner that is concrete and practical, providing concise application to everyday architectural challenges. Fantastic!" --Ryan Frazier, Technology Strategist, Microsoft "...a tour de force that elegantly applies REST principles to the industry-standard SOA framework described in prior titles in this series.... This book is a must-read for anyone developing REST services." --Dave Slotnick, Enterprise Architect, Rackspace Hosting "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. This book clarifies the convergence of SOA and REST with no-nonsense content that addresses common questions and issues head-on. An essential ''instrument of modern service implementation'' and a powerful body of knowledge for software designers, architects, and consultants." --Pethuru Raj, Ph.D., Enterprise Architecture (EA) Consultant, Wipro Consulting Services "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 considered REST in your SOA work, then this book is for you, too. Covering concepts of both REST and SOA, as well as design patterns and when to use them, the book is a wonderful companion and a good tool for architects and engineers." --Dr. Mark Little, CTO JBoss, Red Hat "Unlike many other texts on the subject, SOA with REST is a well-rounded, easy-to-read narrative, including real-world case studies that appeal to both developers and analysts. This makes it an indispensable source for any SOA practitioner or any professional who is planning to initiate an SOA project." --Theodore T. Morrison, Certified SOA Analyst, CSM, Geocent, LLC "SOA and REST are two very important architectural styles for distributed computing. SOA is successfully adopted by most enterprises, and the REST style is getting more attention from both researcher and industry users. The book SOA with REST introduces a new architectural style that is ingeniously combining both SOA and REST styles and clearly reveals how SOA and REST can work together to generate successful enterprise SOA strategies with REST, along with guidance for making architecture design decisions. This book is a bible of best practices for designing and implementing SOA architecture with REST. It is a must-have reference book for both IT practitioners and researchers." --Longji Tang, FedEx IT Senior Technical Advisor, Ph.D. in CSSE The Definitive Guide to Building Web-Centric SOA with REST The World Wide Web is based on the most successful technology architecture in history. It has changed how we view, access, and exchange information and, with the advent of REST, it has also provided us with compelling ways to build and improve automation solutions. REST provides a great deal of guidance to ensure that an architecture and its automation logic are technically sound, though it is still your responsibility to build services that actually add value to your business. SOA with REST is the first comprehensive tutorial and reference for designing and building RESTful services as part of service-oriented solutions and in conjunction with service-oriented architecture (SOA). This book demonstrates that REST is not only a suitable medium for building truly service-oriented solutions, but also that the service-oriented architectural model is a necessary foundation for REST technology architectures to realize their full business potential. The authors provide thorough mapping of REST constraints and architectural goals with service-orientation principles and SOA characteristics. Using real-world examples, they show how to leverage REST''s simplicity, flexibility, and low overhead without compromising the power or manageability of service-oriented solutions and architectures. This book will be valuable to IT architects, developers, and any practitioner seeking to use SOA and REST together.
