Get Real with REST

Sunday, February 3, 2008

WSF/PHP is the only PHP SOAP API out there that enable you to write a single service script and expose that using both as REST and SOAP with a single deployment.

There was this criticism, however, that the level of REST support was not that RESTful. There is good news now. Apache Axis2/C, the heart of WSF/PHP, has improved the REST support to make it more RESTful. WSF/PHP would soon integrate this improved REST features.

The good news is that not only there would be more support for HTTP methods like PUT and DELETE, it would also provide means to map different PHP functions to a custom resource URI. Keep your fingers crossed.
