The Caboteria / Tech Web / RestWebServicesNotes (08 Dec 2012, TobyCabot)
Representational State Transfer is the software architecture of the world wide web. You can use this architecture to build distributed systems - it's an alternative to SOAP (see SoapWebServicesNotes).

http://rest.blueoxen.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?FrontPage - the REST wiki
http://www.prescod.net/rest/mistakes/ - don't make these mistakes
http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2004/12/01/restful-web.html - the first in a series of good columns about building RESTful web services.
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/389169/best-practices-for-api-versioning - discussion of best practices for API versioning.

RESTful bits and pieces:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AS2 - AS2: a specification about how to transport data securely and reliably over the Internet.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenSearch - OpenSearch: a collection of technologies that allow publishing of search results in a format suitable for syndication and aggregation.
http://code.google.com/apis/gdata/index.html - Google Data Protocol: a REST-inspired technology for reading, writing, and modifying information on the web.
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6648 - the "x-" prefix for internet content types is now considered deprecated.
