Solid Book for Learning about REST,
This review is from: REST in Practice: Hypermedia and Systems Architecture (Paperback)
This book provided a clear and concise overview of how to apply REST architectural principles to enterprise development. The books starts from the basics and in each chapter adds a new layer of sophistication to build a simple but complete business process with REST. I was especially interested in the sections that detailed how to use REST principles to handle enterprise integration tasks instead of using expensive proprietary middleware. I also liked the chapter on security which detailed how to use OpenID and OAuth to handle authentication and authorization respectively.
I would recommend this book to anybody looking for a good practical example of building a REST services.
