RESTful Enterprise Development 58m41s Video.

Ian Robinson of ThoughtWorks presents a RESTful approach to managing workflow using event notification in a service based system. In this study event consumers pull events off Atom feeds. Ian describes how the Atom Syndication Format is used to represent a collection of links to the event(resource)s and how features of both HTTP and the Atom Publishing Protocol are used to help consumers keep their event data fresh. A caching proxy in front of the event provider Atom Feed (Atom Server) is used to foster scalability. The caching proxy itself can utilize HTTP cache channels to keep its own content fresh.

The background domain for this study of restful enterprise development is described in "How to GET a Cup of Coffee" which itself was inspired by Gregor Hohpe's "Starbucks Does Not Use Two-Phase Commit".
