RESTful Web Services

We wrote this book to tell you about an amazing new technology. It’s here, it’s hot, and it promises to radically change the way we write distributed systems. We’re talking about the World Wide Web. Okay, it’s not a new technology. It’s not as hot as it used to be, and from a technical standpoint it’s not incredibly amazing. But everything else is true. In 10 years the Web has changed the way we live, but it’s got more change left to give. The Web is a simple, ubiquitous, yet overlooked platform for distributed programming. The goal of this book is to pull out that change and send it off into the world.
