The REST Dialogs

Duncan Cragg probably thought he was clever when he started his REST Dialogs verus an imaginary eBay architect. But then Dan Pritchett, a real eBay architect jumped into the fray.

This promises to be interesting!

Pritchett makes a good point about caching: "Caching dynamically generated content is considerably more difficult than you think. There are portions of our results that can be cached but rarely the entire result set from a single request. We already to caching where it can be done and still provide correct results to the interface. Bear in mind that you are talking about a system with more than 5,000 state changes per second."
