Speaker: Ben Hale
As data-driven applications become more widespread, the services that provide the data are becoming more critical. Most commonly these data services are exposed via REST-ful APIs. This session describes what exactly makes a service REST-ful, how to implement a REST-ful API using Spring, and how to test that API.
Make sure to check out Ben's follow on talk from SpringOne2GX2013: REST-ful API Evolution for a great discussion of API loose coupling with HATEOAS.
