Ben Wilcock writes - "RESTful web services have been with us for a while now, and initially I, like many others, was put-off by the general lack of information on how to design and implement a RESTful web service correctly.

However, a number of books are now available that attempt to guide the way by documenting the RESTful standard, its principals, and the Java implementation frameworks available to help. Packt Publishing have teamed up with Jose Sandoval to publish “RESTful Java Web Services” — a short-format & developer-focused book that attempts to quickly tutor the reader on the RESTful standard and illustrate how to code RESTful services with a number of popular REST frameworks."

In this blog post Ben goes on to give a full review of the book to see if it delivers on its promises...
