It’s Not Just Me



David Johnson in response to Sam Ruby’s post about weblog APIs:

It hurts my head too. I’d rather see a SOAP interface where everything is specified by WSDL, or a RESTLog-like interface where everything is drop-dead simple.

I’d love to see a SOAP interface.  I love parsing some WSDL and ending up with everything I need to use it generated for me.  I’ve done it in both Java and .NET, and it’s wonderful.

Simultaneously, I would love to see a minimalistic RESTful interface.

I just hope that the major weblog software vendors go for it.
