I’m a few days late, but Sam Ruby posted his excellent REST+SOAP essay last week. I was surprised to see it not get more fanfare. I commented to Sam that I was concerned about this bit;

Now add high level methods which take care of all composite
create, update, and delete operations.

Sam suggested to me off-line that he was thinking about it in terms of just passing data over a wall/membrane, to which I responded that this is exactly how POST works; that the operation that occurs is determined solely by the server. So we may be in synch, but given previous things I’ve heard him say, and his work on SOAP and WSDL, I wonder if we really are. But here’s hoping!!
