   Re: [xml-dev] many-to-many

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I'm not sure that's true.  Ultimately, all you can model is the interaction
between client and server.  In this case, that means URIs and
Representations.  The Resource seems to me just a convenience for the server
implementer, since the client can't know any more about than what it knows
of URIs and Representations.  I have wondered at times if the use of
Resource in REST discussions has been more a tool to illustrate the
architecutral style than an actual concrete part of the equation...
