Lately, I've been helping Jerome Louvel and Thierry Boileau, the Restlet creators, in the writing of Restlet in Action. The first part of the book is now available in the early access program at Manning's. Restlet is a powerful Java framework for creating RESTful distributed systems. Not only does it target Web services, it also supports creating RESTful Web sites, addresses both the server sides and the client sides and has built-in support for the semantic Web. It can be used in a number of Java environments, including Java SE/EE, GWT, GAE (Google cloud computing platform) and even Android.
