[Again]RESTful WS Enterprise

Hello!

I'm a "RESTful fan" and I have been working and studing it since RESTful WebServices book, which I believe was the book that marks the start of the "RESTful popularization".

Again about RESTful enterprise. Do you believe that REST WS will someday dominate enterprise world?

I mean, I know that REstful WS are now being used in a lot of enterprise products, but we don'thave something like WSRP for REST instead using SOAP (for example).

I also heard about REST-*, something like that, that would the equivalent of the WS-* patterns, but for REST, but it was not very popular (Roy didn't liked that, so the community...)

I also knows that we have books focused in REST real world applications (e.g. REST in Practice), but I still see that the adoption of REST in this field is not very huge as expected.

Developers still likes the stateful model(and rest is entirely stateless) with session, etc,etc


The answer isn't "Why", is "How"!

I think this is a very broad question. Enterprise world is always under stress to complete the task onetime and using REST vs Session is more of architecture decision then a developer decision. If you use REST then there are many architecture challenges to resolve in a context of relatively small application. I believe that is one of the main reason why restful services are not used. However more and more companies absorbing HTML5 and jQuery and cloud model. May be next 5 year we will be there.

I agree with you in this part. Sure REST is more suitable for WEB and HTML, JQuery, etc.
