The SOA and REST architectural styles have sparked some heated debate since the publication of the SOAP and WSDL notes on the W3C site, the basis of so-called "Web services", over seven years ago.

This talk will contrast the messaging approach of SOAP with the resource centric approach of HTTP using a series of practical use-cases intended to be familiar to enterprise architects. This talk replaces Steve Vinoski's "REST Eye for the SOA Guy"
