   RE: [xml-dev] What Does SOAP/WS Do that A REST System Can't?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Thanks Dare and Michael.  So WS is pre-rolled 
and REST is roll-your-own.  The contents of the 
package are dealer's choice.

I want to know what others have to say.  I think 
you are saying that there is a complexity trade-off; 
that is, if you don't need a, b and c, REST 
is easier and faster to develop.  OTOH if 
you buy WS* does a, b and c and you get to 
spend more time on the content as long as you 
are happy with vendorZed's implementation of 
a, b and c.

Can we keep this on a technical plane please?  I'm 
not trying to start a fight; I need to be wiser about 
this topic in terms of trade-offs.  Various flavors 
or vendors of WS* aren't the topic of interest to me 
unless they critically affect a technical tradeoff.
