Zend Framework offers excellent facilities for creating RESTful web services via the Zend_Rest_Route component. Couple this with its ContextSwitch action helper, and it's trivially easy to provide RESTful endpoints for a variety of contextual endpoints, including XML and JSON.||In this session, we'll look closely at the mechanics and implications of Zend_Rest_Route, how and when to do content-type negotiation, and several approaches to making the logic in your controller re-usable across content types. Additionally, we'll look at how such a RESTful service might be consumed by client-side scripting via Dojo's JsonRestStore -- providing a real-world case for implenting REST in your web application.
