In SOA , REST and WS-* carry equal precedence on the popularity scale.. However, architects and developers prefer REST over WS-* due to its simplicity, flexibility and the efficiency it can provide when combined with technologies such as XML and JSON, Therefore providing REST APIs for existing applications is a very common use case in the context of enterprise integration. This creates the requirement for having a robust integration framework which can process RESTful invocations with minimum overheads while connecting to diverse backend applications.
This session will explore the REST support available in the WSO2 ESB. It will explain how to expose RESTful services on the WSO2 ESB and how to route REST calls to applications based on different technologies such as SOAP and JMS. The presentation will also walk through some exciting new features of the WSO2 ESB which can be used to manage RESTful resources and APIs.
