RESTful .NET: Build and Consume RESTful Web Services with .NET 3.5 By Jon Flanders
2008 | 310 Pages | ISBN: 0596519206 | PDF | 3 MB
RESTful .NET is the first book that teaches Windows developers to build RESTful web services using the latest Microsoft tools. Written by Windows Communication Foundation (WFC) expert Jon Flanders, this hands-on tutorial demonstrates how you can use WCF and other components of the .NET 3.5 Framework to build, deploy and use REST-based web services in a variety of application scenarios.
RESTful architecture offers a simpler approach to building web services than SOAP, SOA, and the cumbersome WS- stack. And WCF has proven to be a flexible technology for building distributed systems not necessarily tied to WS- standards. RESTful .NET provides you with a complete guide to the WCF REST programming model for building web services consumed either by machines or humans. You'll learn how to:
Program Read-Only (GET) services
Program READ/WRITE services
Host REST services
Program REST feeds
Program AJAX REST clients
Secure REST endpoints
Use workflow to deliver REST services
Consume RESTful XML services using WCF
Work with HTTP
Work with ADO.NET Data Services (Astoria)
RESTful .NET introduces you to the ideas of REST and RESTful architecture, and includes a detailed discussion of how the Web/REST model plugs into the WCF architecture. If you develop with .NET, it's time to jump on the RESTful bandwagon. This book explains how.
