Kurzbeschreibung

22. Mai 2007
"Every developer working with the Web needs to read this book." -- David Heinemeier Hansson, creator of the Rails framework "RESTful Web Services finally provides a practical roadmap for constructing services that embrace the Web, instead of trying to route around it." -- Adam Trachtenberg, PHP author and EBay Web Services Evangelist You've built web sites that can be used by humans. But can you also build web sites that are usable by machines? That's where the future lies, and that's what RESTful Web Services shows you how to do. The World Wide Web is the most popular distributed application in history, and Web services and mashups have turned it into a powerful distributed computing platform. But today's web service technologies have lost sight of the simplicity that made the Web successful. They don't work like the Web, and they're missing out on its advantages. This book puts the "Web" back into web services. It shows how you can connect to the programmable web with the technologies you already use every day. The key is REST, the architectural style that drives the Web. This book:* Emphasizes the power of basic Web technologies -- the HTTP application protocol, the URI naming standard, and the XML markup language * Introduces the Resource-Oriented Architecture (ROA), a common-sense set of rules for designing RESTful web services * Shows how a RESTful design is simpler, more versatile, and more scalable than a design based on Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) * Includes real-world examples of RESTful web services, like Amazon's Simple Storage Service and the Atom Publishing Protocol * Discusses web service clients for popular programming languages * Shows how to implement RESTful services in three popular frameworks -- Ruby on Rails, Restlet (for Java), and Django (for Python) * Focuses on practical issues: how to design and implement RESTful web services and clients This is the first book that applies the REST design philosophy to real web services. It sets down the best practices you need to make your design a success, and the techniques you need to turn your design into working code. You can harness the power of the Web for programmable applications: you just have to work with the Web instead of against it. This book shows you how.

Synopsis

"Every developer working with the Web needs to read this book." - David Heinemeier Hansson, creator of the Rails framework. ""RESTful Web Services" finally provides a practical roadmap for constructing services that embrace the Web, instead of trying to route around it." - Adam Trachtenberg, PHP author and "EBay Web Services Evangelist". You've built web sites that can be used by humans. But can you also build web sites that are usable by machines? That's where the future lies, and that's what "RESTful Web Services" shows you how to do. The World Wide Web is the most popular distributed application in history, and Web services and mashups have turned it into a powerful distributed computing platform. But today's web service technologies have lost sight of the simplicity that made the Web successful. They don't work like the Web, and they're missing out on its advantages. This book puts the "Web" back into web services. It shows how you can connect to the programmable web with the technologies you already use every day. The key is REST, the architectural style that drives the Web.

This book: emphasizes the power of basic Web technologies - the HTTP application protocol, the URI naming standard, and the XML markup language; introduces the Resource-Oriented Architecture (ROA), a common-sense set of rules for designing RESTful web services; Shows how a RESTful design is simpler, more versatile, and more scalable than a design based on Remote Procedure Calls (RPC); and includes real-world examples of RESTful web services, like Amazon's Simple Storage Service and the Atom Publishing Protocol; discusses web service clients for popular programming languages. It also shows you how to implement RESTful services in three popular frameworks - Ruby on Rails, Restlet (for Java), and Django (for Python), and focuses on practical issues such as: how to design and implement RESTful web services and clients. This is the first book that applies the REST design philosophy to real web services. It sets down the best practices you need to make your design a success, and the techniques you need to turn your design into working code. You can harness the power of the Web for programmable applications: you just have to work with the Web instead of against it.

This book shows you how.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Klare und tiefgehende Darstellung 9. Dezember 2012
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Das Buch bietet eine sehr klare Darstellung des Themas. Es zeigt, wie man Web-Services gestalten sollte, damit sie mit der Architektur des Webs nicht im Widerspruch stehen, sondern im Einklang. Es verbindet konzeptionelle Klarheit mit praktischen Handreichungen, die man in eigene Projekte umsetzen kann. Es erklärt, wie man es nicht machen soll, welche Probleme aus schlechten Entwürfen resultieren und wie man es richtig macht. Sehr hilfreich ist auch der Bezug auf bestehende Web-Services und deren Einordnung anhand der Kriterien der ROA (RESTful Architecture) die im Buch vorgestellt wird. Angenehm ist, das das Buch immer "Bodenhaftung" hat und nicht ins "Faseln" gerät. Die Autoren wissen, worüber sie schreiben.

5.0 von 5 Sternen REST Bible 23. September 2012
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
At work I was confronted with the task of designing a REST API for a Web service that is being used by mobile apps. I had no knowledge whatsoever on REST so I first read about it on the Internet as much as I could find to get some basic understanding. I Very soon I found out that this basic understanding was not enough in order to design a whole new REST API from scratch.

I bought this book and it gave me everything I needed. A deep understanding of why to design my Web service restful as well as clear instructions how to practically implement them.

Anybody who needs to design as restful Web service will be happy to have this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen RESTful Web Services ist zu empfehlen. 19. September 2007
Format:Taschenbuch
Das Buch namens RESTful Web Services ist zu empfehlen. Ich verstehe wie Web Services funktionieren, könnte aber nie verstehen warum viele Leute, die REST empfehlen, über Web Services schimften. Nach ich dieses Buch gelesen habe, habe ich verständnis bezüglich was REST ist und wie REST eingesetzt werden kann gewonnen. Das Buch behält auch sehr viel Informationen über HTTP und XML, sowie über Web Architekturen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant and Horrible 19. Juli 2008
Von Lars Tackmann - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Packed with all sorts of knowledge about REST, HTTP and AJAX this book will make you very capable at building well designed RESTful web services. Any topic imaginable is covered, from obscure ways of handling transactions, to Apache proxies, service implementations in Rails and the limitations of the current browser security model.

While this is all good and useful stuff, it also scatters the books focus, which eventually turns out to be its major problem. The topic orientation simply sucks. I would recommend reading the book in this order:

* Core knowledge
- Introduction, Chapter 1 and 3
- Chapter 4, 8, 9
- Optional: chap 10 (comparison to SOAP).

* REST service examples
- Chapter 5, 6 and 7

* REST clients
- Chapter 2 and 11

The service examples (chapter 5 - 7) should really have been one chapter. The client chapters does not show how to write clients against the provided example services, which is a major mistake. The core knowledge scattered throughout chapter 4, 8 and 9 (like the ATOM publishing protocol which is covered multiple places) should be collected and ordered.

So why the four starts ?. I have to admit that my annoyance with the books topical layout is trumped by the authors knowledge and their ability to pack a surprising number of usable facts into this book. So if you do not loose your way in their topical jungle then you will eventually come through as a REST maven.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good but pedantic and repetitious 29. August 2007
Von Alberto Accomazzi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Ok, the concept behind the book is valid: let's have computers use the web the way it was intended to be used, and if everybody sticks to a small set of reasonable design rules, we'd all be better off. But why does it take 400 pages for the authors to drive that point home (over and over again)? 70% of the content seems "filler" material, which has been put in just to turn this into a book. True, there are code examples that may be helpful to some beginner programmers, but I'm still left feeling that this could have been a well-written, 3-chapter book about 100 pages long.

I'm still glad I read it but found the blabbing rather frustrating. My 2c.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Nearly Abysmal 2. August 2007
Von Evan Dower - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
1) The editors were apparently on vacation. There are numerous errors including several typographical errors that a simple spell-check would have caught (words like "ang" and "extrenal") and a number of ungrammatical sentences.
2) The authors frequently make best practices statements without actually supporting them with evidence or otherwise explaining what makes them best practices.
3) There's really only about 100 pages of content. The other three quarters of the book is repetition. For example, chapters 4 and 8 seem to be the same. There is even a specific example regarding content language that is presented in chapter 4 and not referred to but simply repeated in chapter 8.

This book could be obsoleted by a brief 3 part tutorial perhaps combined with a half-hour slide show.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A lot of information. Maybe too much. 15. Juli 2007
Von Larry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
There's a lot of material in this book - close to 400 dense pages of highly technical information. This and the ton of examples can't help but impress upon you that the authors are smart. Very smart.
The problem I have with this book is that maybe there's too much information. REST is supposed to simplify things, right? Up until this point I've read about REST in a couple of Rails book. I understand it (I think) and believe it's the wave of the future, especially after spending hours slogging through 800+ page books on JEE Web Services, WS-Death-*s (good call DHH!) and SOAs. While this book clocks in with less pages, it's still a tough read at times. And sometimes it was easy to lose sight of the forest while meandering through the numerous and sometimes-scattered trees.
Maybe that's just how tech books are; I don't know. I do know that most people are pressed for time and don't live and breath this stuff - which could explain the popularity of the "For Dummies" and "Head First" series.
Come to think of it, that's what I'd like to see: a "Head First RESTful Web Services" book. I think that would actually *help more people* to understand, and thus use, this technology.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good but slightly misleading 22. Oktober 2007
Von W. Brown - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a nice work on RESTful web-services, but I found the examples to be less than useful. The majority of the examples hide the true details of the creation and handling of RESTful web-services in calls to Ruby libraries. These examples give the reader no real understanding of what's actually happening under the covers and thus no platform from which to attempt to implement RESTful web-services in other languages.

It's also troubling that the authors have found it necessary to redefine already well defined industry terms and definitions in order to bolster their own arguments for REST. For instance the authors, throughout the book, repeatedly refer to all SOAP exchanges as being RPC like, which is certainly not the case. The authors make no attempt to compare and contrast real message-oriented or document-literal web-services against RESTful web-services. Chapter 10 includes one single sentence on "new WSDL features" like document/literal, which the authors admit to not covering, as encouraging the creation of RPC style web-services. At best this is simple ignorance and at worst is willful deception.

I'd recommend this book as a good resource on the idea of what it means for a web-service to be truly RESTful, but I would also advise the reader to approach this work from a critical thinking standpoint. It's obvious from reading this work that the author's have an agenda and that they are willing to alter industry standard terms and definitions in order to promote their work.

Cheers
