I suspect this is not feasible for everyone to do. However, if the REST
contingent would perhaps post a simple application somewhere we could
download, install, and marvel at it perhaps some of these issues would go
away. Or at least the non-REST crowd could argue on a more informed basis.

So how about it? If someone in the REST camp writes a simple application for
(say) Tomcat or IIS and makes it available to the group? If REST truly is as
powerful as its strongest advocates suggest then this will surely come over
in the example.

To be honest the notion of epiphany appeals to me (I had one of those once
and it was just fab), and so I wouldn't mind having one again.

So, I guess in response to this thread I would have to say, "put up or shut
up."*
