ABSTRACT
RESTful Web services are now emerging as an alternative to SOAP-based Web services and might be a more suitable choice in some cases. A comparison of two Web programming interfaces — the standard Parlay-X multimedia SOAP-based Web service and a RESTful Web service that offers the same functionalities — for developing multimedia conferencing applications shows that the RESTful Web interface offers better performance.
