Hi,

I'm thinking of developing an app for the google app engine, I would like to implement it with REST so I can potentially have multiple interfaces, such as a web UI and an Android client

I have experience with MVC web applications, but none with REST, can anyone point me out some places to start?

Should it involve exposing members on my Action/Service layer with REST annotations?

Thanks

The wikipedia article is a nice survey.


Restlet and the Jersey project appear to be mature implementations.

Thanks Bill,

Was having a look at Restlet in my lunch break today, looks simple enough, will give it a good bash over the weekend

Cheers
