Representational State Transfer (REST) architectural style proponents describe it as being easy, but this in no way implies that REST is trivial or simplistic, nor does it mean that RESTful systems lack sophistication. The author covers the primary areas that developers must continually consider as they design and build Web services. Tools can certainly provide reminders about these areas and help to track progress, but ultimately, developers must understand the underlying technical issues to be able to make suitable design and implementation choices.
