What is better, a generic solution or a specific one? Stefan Tilkov’s answer is “It depends.” He compares XML vs HTML, DSM-UML, Internal-External DSL, SOAP-REST, and others, outlining the advantages and disadvantages of each solution, showing that there is no certain answer to an architect’s quest to solve his problem, but there are some guidelines helping along the way.
In this session recorded at QCon SF 2008, Chris Berry & Bryon Jacob presented the Atom Syndication Format, the Atom Publishing Protocol, the Atom Categories, the Atom Stores, the AtomServer and how they can be used by giving a concrete example.
In this presentation, recorded at QCon San Francisco, ThoughtWorks' Ian Robinson explains how a RESTful HTTP approach can be applied in an Enterprise project.

In this presentation, WSO2 co-founder Paul Fremantle talks about the experience of creating an open source SOA registry solution for WS-* web services using RESTful HTTP and Atom/AtomPub and talks about the challenges that were faced. In addition, the talk addresses the use of a pure REST solution by a team with a strong focus on WS-* solutions.
In his presentation, recorded at QCon San Francisco, MuleSource architect Dan Diephouse explores ways to use the Atom Publishing Protocol (AtomPub) when building services in a RESTful way. He explains when to use and when to avoid using AtomPub, highlights its advantages, and shows where it doesn't provide a generic solution.
WCF is not just for SOAP based services and can be used with popular protocols like RSS, REST and JSON. Rob Windsor covers URI templates, the importance of HTTP GET in the programmable web, how to expose service operations via HTTP GET, how to control the format of data exposed by service operations, and finally how to use the WebOperationContext to access the specifics of HTTP.
In Visual Basic 9.0, XML becomes a built-in data type with a rich editing experience that completely eliminates the conceptual barrier between the code that you write and the XML that you're trying to express. It will cover tips, tricks, and gotchas so that developers reach peak performance when programming against XML with LINQ in Visual Basic 9.0.
