REST vs HTTP+POX vs SOAP

Sam and Leonard ponder the differences among them. Here’s the deal:

  1. REST == HTTP GET
  2. HTTP+POX == HTTP GET & POST
  3. SOAP == HTTP POST, with interop issues

REST Web Services, the Book

Sam Ruby and Leonard Richardson are writing a book on REST Web services. Very exciting. I love reading Sam’s blog and watching him untangle standards.

Looking at the Table of Contents, I’m particularly interested in “Appendix A: HTTP status codes and when to use each one.” (Yes, I am serious.)
