This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I certainly hope that not too many (preferably none) of the questions on the SCDJWS 6 exam pertain to ReST services that use the HTTP POST method. In fact, even as more of a SOAP fan, I can understand why some services are better off as ReST, when using the HTTP GET method.
But trying to code a decent client that sends and receives an HTTP POST to a ReST Service, using Dispatch<source>.invoke() seems overly complex, error prone, not to mention the handling of the request on the server side.
