InternetWeek REST Article

InternetWeek published an article about REST as a different approach to Web services today. Some good stuff, but the conclusion of the article misses the point.

Perhaps this point doesn’t get made enough (hah! 8-), but not only is REST is an alternate approach to building Web services, it’s superior in almost any measurable way I can think of. Not all architectural styles are created equal, obviously, and not all are suitable for Internet scale deployment; REST is, Web services aren’t.
