REST-* is an organization dedicated to bringing the architecture of the Web to common patterns in middleware technology.

While REST has gained huge momentum in the SOA community, there hasn't been a lot of standardization of traditional middleware services. The REST-* community aims to introduce new REST-based standards for these traditional services where none exist and provide well-defined guidelines where protocols do exist. Please join us in defining this exciting new area!
