Restlets, the next thing after servlets?
By bblfish on Mar 21, 2006
I have been looking for a client side API for implementing the Atom Publication Protocol (APP). Since APP is based on REST principles it would be nice for there to be a good Java library that worked at the right level of abstraction.
Last week I came across the Restlet library that is designed to work both for client tools as well as for servers, and is designed to replace the Servlet interface. Could this be even better? It is certainly taking the paradigm seriously and so does warrant a close look.
Feedback welcome, and I'll post my experiences.
