A RESTful Implementation of the WS-Agreement Specification

Roland Kübert, Gregory Katsaros, Tinghe Wang


Representational State Transfer (REST) is an architectural style for distributed systems. RESTful web services have been gaining popularity in the last years. The Java API for RESTful Web Services (JAX-RS) has been specified as Java Specification Request 311 and is therefore an official part of Java; with the Jersey framework, a robust reference implementation of the specification exists. We examine in how far RESTful web services can fulfill tasks that have been defined as WS-* specifications. In particular, we investigate how a RESTful design and implementation of the WS-Agreement specification can be realized, presenting a light-weight approach to the creation and management of service level agreements.
