WS-* vs REST: A quick comparison

  • A SOAP service (WS-*) has a single endpoint that handles all the operations
    • It has to have an application-specific interface.
    • Functionality is hidden behind the interface.
    • Data is processed “behind” the interface by a service implementation.
    • The focus is on the functionality.
  • A RESTful service has a number of Web resources, so the operations are distributed over the resources
    • The functionality is “embedded and intertwined” with the data interaction protocol (i.e., HTTP).
    • The focus is on the data.
    • Data is “close” to the prosumer.
