A useful resource for Web architecture fans.

If you're new to the Wiki concept, take a few minutes to read up on the
basics: http://internet.conveyor.com/RESTwiki/moin.cgi/GettingStarted
or the general introduction at http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?WikiWikiWeb

I've recently been experimenting with SOAP interfaces for RDF query
protocols; while it works (the Python and Perl SOAP libraries made things
quite easy for me as a developer), I have some worries about the way SOAP
uses HTTP (eg. all my queries get represented as HTTP POSTs, where the
cacheable GET would make more sense). The RESTwiki seems like a good place
to record these experiments; I hope to make time to do that in the near

I should also mention that Wiki's aren't a great place to have the kind of
wide ranging technical _disputes_ we sometimes see on www-rdf-interest.
For that, it might be worth using the #RDFIG IRC channel and associated
tools, http://www.w3.org/RDF/Interest/#irc

have fun,

Announcing RESTwiki, a Wiki devoted to documenting and understanding
REST (REpresentational State Transfer), the name given by Roy Fielding
to the architecture of the Web as implemented in HTTP and URIs.

Some of the topics we expect the Wiki to cover include;
 * various descriptions of REST and its pros and cons
 * REST & Web services
 * RPC, SOAP, and REST
 * and last but not least, the obligatory "REST FAQ"

Please join us at http://conveyor.com/RESTwiki
