REST isn't a framework - it's a design philosophy based on Roy Fieldings Ph.D. dissertation
Architectural Styles and the Design of Network-based Software Architectures.
As such it isn't as "toolable" as SOAP, WSDL and the WS-* (which is why those technologies seem to be "everywhere" despite their inherent complexities).
