REST is a good set of design suggestions for designing web services, but, like anything else, don't get too caught up in adhering to the philosophy. Use the techniques that will work best for the problem you're trying to solve.

SOAP should be avoided at all costs. It has no redeeming qualities whatsoever and was probably responsible for the Teletubbies. In any case, REST applications tend to be designed more around a "give me this chunk of information" and "put this chunk of information there" concept, whereas SOAP is a bad attempt at doing RPC over XML over HTTP, which probably isn't what you want.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
