Presentation: "Practical Guide to using REST for SOA"

Time: Wednesday 10:35 - 11:35

Location: City Room


Whether you've already managed to convince your higher-ups that REST is the way to go, can decide to do so for yourself, or are still looking for ways to do the convincing, at one point in time you'llhave to actually start doing stuff as opposed to talk about it. In this talk, we'll take a look at some practical recipes on how to use RESTful approaches for SOA, including options for mixing it with WS-*, picking the right data formats, (re-)introducing infrastructure, dealing with RESTful SOA governance and other aspects deemed "enterprisey" by the cool kids.

Keywords: REST, SOA, Governance, Enterprise, WS-*
