Hi all,

Travelling on the Web, i've found some links about REST related to my searches on SOAP and Web Services.
What's this? Can we consider a model without SOAP and WSDL as a kind of Web Service?
Thanks for sharing the ideas u have about this.

Hi,

From blog to blog, I found some answers.
REST vs SOAP is an old debate (2002) starting again from time to time.
My understanding is that the arguments of REST advocates are too much B2C and human-user oriented.
IMO, the field of WS is B2B and literal/document. Although WSDL can be considered complicated for human readers, this should not be a problem for an application.

Any ideas?
