REST -only links or no?
REST touts that a "progresses through an application by selecting links (state transitions) resulting in the next page.... To borrow from a commonly used example, if I have a web service that "gets a list of parts", the URI to get the parts would look like this: and the "response" contains a list of links to the individual parts like this: <Part id="00345" xlink:href="http://www.part... For additional information, I would have to "select" ......

Is Software Development Really Hard?
Rocky blogs that 98% of the systems being built out there are "trivial" or at least can be solved by "trivial" solutions. Is this really the case? He also contends that most applications are a "viewer (form, page, screen)" over data and development tools such automat this, attributing unecessary complexity to tool vendors, framework builders, architects etc. I actually disagree with his assessment on the distribution of complexity. My developers spend much more of their time behind the screen than ......

Why I Hate Frameworks
Via Don Box, I stumbled on this Why I Hate Frameworks. Quite humorous and actutally a good read. Frameworks exist at multiple levels e.g. in my opinion System.IO is a framework. However, just like everything else, things can be overdone which leads invariably to Technology (maybe now Framework?) Overload. What do you think ......

All things pragmatic...
So Mr.Box posts Pragmatics and he's generated quite a buzz. Bottom line (unfortunately) is that something has to ship, and with the toolsets available SOAP seems the easier/easiest option right now. Clemens has a series of articles that I need to read up on to see how “Indigo can do REST”. I wonder how many .NET based REST implementations exist out there? If you know of any please share. Interesting stuff huh ......

Two forces of nature
Udi, once again posts a brilliant article here. Specifically in Microsoft-dom, “Connected Systems” is definitely the mantra. However, I look at this slightly different from how Udi looks it. I take it to mean: How Can We Connect Everything and Anything with Everything and Anything in the simplest way possible. For some, this is a big issue and for others (due to whatever requirements they have), it isn't. I think you need to figure “how to connect” before figuring out “what ......

How many is too many?
Udi posts So many Dlls, so little time. Working on a project where there was a class to dll mapping, I can agree to some degree with what Udi states. However, I believe becoming to granular also has its disadvantages and if not careful instead of referencing one dll with a couple of classes, you might end up referencing ten dlls with a class each. I think that related classes should be wrapped up into a single project and assemblied as a single unit. Interfaces should be used to broker communication ......
