Session: Rest from use-cases

Thursday, 14:20 - 15:10
Track: Architecture

Building REST API's for distributed applications is becoming more and more popular. But, there is one thing that most developers miss, which is the HATEOAS requirement, i.e. linking. This session will explain how exposing use-cases brings a natural solution to this problem, and how this will simplify both API development, documentation, as well as client development.


Java, web development, domain modeling. Having used REST libraries is a plus.


Understand what REST is, and how exposing use-cases as a REST API will help you achieve true REST.
