Training: "REST in Practice - A Tutorial on Web-based Distributed Systems"
Monday 09:00 - 16:00
The Web is fast becoming a serious competitor to traditional enterprise
architecture approaches. This tutorial will provide an introduction to
RESTful Web Service techniques, both from a theoretical and practical
perspectives. The tutorial is broken down as follows:
- Introduction and Motivation
- The Web Architecture
- Simple Web Integration including POX and URI tunnelling
- CRUD Services using URI templates and HTTP
- Semantics using Microformats and RDF
- Hypermedia and the REST architectural style
- Scalability and how a text-based client-server polling protocol outperforms everything else!
- ATOM and ATOMPub for event-driven and pub/sub applications Security
- Conclusions and further thoughts
Participants should be comfortable with distributed computing
concepts, but won't need any particular integration or middleware
