New book ordered

RESTful web services by Richardson and Ruby (O'Reilly) [cover from Amazon.co.uk] I’ve just ordered RESTful Web Services by Leonard Richardson and Sam Ruby (Published May 2007, O’Reilly Media Inc). I plan to have at least one lecture on REST (representational state transfer) and up to now the only definitive reference was Roy Fielding’s PhD thesis. I was going to buy this book anyway but an interview with the authors and a free chapter available was made available yesterday on InfoQ prompted me to take action. For more on REST see also the RESTWiki.
