Re: SOAP and REST at Amazon
> Why do you think Amazon's users prefer REST? Because they are mostly simple applications that really are just GET -- get me this web page, get me this XSLT output (gotta admire Amazon for putting themselves out there on that one). Almost all the POST uses are for credit-card transactions where the liability is already limited by US law. Therefore, there is no reason for multi-party interactions (defeats their whole intent, which is to become the one-stop merchant platform) no need for signatures, end-to-end encryption, strong authentication, etc. In other words, nothing that would really require a SOAP Header. /r$ -- Rich Salz, Chief Security Architect DataPower Technology http://www.datapower.com XS40 XML Security Gateway http://www.datapower.com/products/xs40.html XML Security Overview http://www.datapower.com/xmldev/xmlsecurity.html
