Building RESTful Applications with the Open Data Protocol
The last session I attended was one regarding RESTful services.
The presenter was very high-spirited and it was a joy to listen to his explanations.
So REST services is exposing a service to be accessed via pure URL address through the browser.
Using the HTTP methods POST GET UPDATE DELETE to access the service if you have the access rights.
He demonstrated how to connect to such a service via a client.
He created an REST service.
He showed an easy API to do paging for the service.
It was a very nice presentation.
