Article: David Nuescheler on JCR and REST
In David's view, Atom Pub and JCR are complementary – similarly to the HTTP protocol and the Servlet API, one doesn't replace the other, but rather they work together. David considers himself "a child of the Web" and a big fan of the REST approach.

Probably a good subject to have a talk on, have you already done that on InfoQ?
one would end up with ugly URLs like …/view.jsp?id=123465 that are clearly not even resource oriented. In more modern frameworks people started to be more flexible with URLs just treating the URL “as a string” allowing for example regexp based dissection of the URL.
That's why despite being a true blue Java developer I will always remain a lifelong Zope fan, those guys understood RESTful architecture (and ideas we still aren't stealing yet in the Java world) while we were still writing noddy JSP applications :-) To this day I regard Zope as containing some of the most elegant concrete programming concepts invented.
All the best
Brilliant - Would like to see more..
The study on “application framework” in Java and “web framework” in Java is also interesting.
