Don Park likes Tuple spaces

I am getting a dangerous itch to apply tuplespaces to web services workflow problems. TupleSpaces are extremely powerful as coordination infrastures so tuplespaces and web services go very well together IMHO.

Don, do you realize that REST’s uniform interface (GET/POST, etc..) defines a coordination language very similiar to a tuple space?

And for enabling workflow, there’s the additional REST constraint of using hypermedia as the engine of application state.
