Presentation: "Understanding the Role of Media Types in RESTful Applications"

Track: REST Architectures / Time: Friday 15:35 - 16:35 / Location: Room 102/103

Media types are the essential ingredient to truly RESTful systems. This presentation shows how a domain specific media type drives server- and client development without any need for an additional service description. A simple change-scenario will be used to demonstrate that the server can evolve without coordinating the change with the client.
