WADL Draft Updated

Tagged:  

The Web Application Description Language--"WSDL for REST"--draft has been updated by Marc Hadley. The namespace has been changed to "http://wadl.dev.java.net/2009/02" to reflect the new draft, and other minor improvements over the Novemeber 2006 version have been incorporated. New and notable:

  • The status attribute was moved from the representation element to the response element. The cardinality of the response element was changed from 0–1 to 0–many. The fault element was removed.
  • Allow parameters at top level and parameter references to prevent repetition when a parameter is used in multiple places.
  • A resource type element may now contain resource child elements.
  • Allow multiple resources elements within an application.

If you're a RESTafarian who still believes in contract-first web services design, don't miss it. You can view the new draft here.
