As if reading my mind from my previous post, Stefan Tilkov comments on Bruce Tate's recent article "REST on Rails" on developerWorks.

Bruce says:

In a nutshell, REST:
  • Uses TCP/IP naming standards to name resources on the Web
  • Queries and manipulates those resources with HTTP
  • Uses standard text-based message formats like XML or HTML to structure data

Crossing borders: REST on Rails

Stefan says:

Maybe true for a RESTful application, but not for REST itself.
