Case Study: RESTful Web Services at Orbitz



Alex Antonov explains why Orbitz needed to ditch Jini and Java serialization in favor of REST and Protocol Buffers. Most of the presentation contains a demo of a sample application using these technologies to handle client-server requests/responses.


Alex joined Orbitz LLC in 2004 and is responsible for providing technical leadership and guidance in the development of foundational technologies, core libraries and APIs for the enterprise-wide use, as well as establishing and maintaining common design principles and standards used within the company and integration of new software development practices within the development community.
