As Roy Fielding is trying to explain REST yet again, I am hearing some absurd fluff here:
- REST/HTTP is a core layer in the Web 2.0 goo
- REST/HTTP is not reliable. We still need WS-* for that
- REST is good for machine to human interactions
- REST needs less client software to be written
- REST is simple
- REST has this nice clean URL patterns that are self-explanatory
- CRUD can't deal with business processes.
