in thread [OT] Desktop applications over HTTP

So basically, it's just REST, no?
Exactly. Well, not quite *exactly* {grin}. One of the tenants of REST that I'm not comfortable is the HTTP method mappings. For instance I'd be more comfortable having insert and update combined into POST rather than PUT, or separating them respectively out into PUT and POST. Forgive me if I'm combining ideas from the REST wiki and the dissertation, I'm still on my first cup of coffee {grin}.

I'm sure if I had time to go back and re-read Fielding's dissertation I could come up with a few more ways that what's proposed in the original post isn't exactly REST, but his work was certainly one of the inspirations for this proposed method.
