RESTful Web Services is a buzz word these days. I found it very easy to develop these kind of WS and would prefer to use it than SOAP based WS.
Can anybody tell what are the Limitations of REST based WS as compare to SOAP based WS.

The WS-* group of standards provide security and authentication standards that have no counterpart in RESTful web services.

Choosing between SOAP and REST depends on how complex your application is.
