Which is the best protocol / format for SOA designs using REST. Here are some options but i can't decide...
These are my requirements...
- should be lightweight and less bandwidth guzzler
- should have existing client libs in Python and PHP
- should scale VERY WELL
-- UPDATE --
We have two machines (one is Python -- our middletier) and the other is PHP (front end -- used for rendering different HTML for old browsers, HTML 5 browsers and our Adobe AIR client). We need a communications pipe between the Python and PHP machine -- and we think a RESTful service pipe will be a good idea -- we just can't decide on the format.
