Re: What Does SOAP/WS Do that A REST System Can't?

By complex, do you mean lots of criteria or do mean something like or'd queries? For the latter, systems generate long URIs all the time, (like Bugzilla). I know some people don't like long URIs for aesthetic reasons, but that's not a good enough reason to use controller URIs (for GET or POST). Mind you I believe HL7 is a monster of a format... If you decide to go the POST route, what you want to avoid are exposing controller URIs (all client requests go to one URI). At least give the things of interest (the equivalent of your objects in your domain model or your table rows in your physical data model) visible identity. cheers Bill
