Architecting a RESTful Services Gateway With OSB 10g
It'll be a while before one finds "Thinks like an architect" listed in the key feature bullet-points for a SOA product. Architectural concepts like the RESTful Services Gateway presented here serve as evidence that one doesn't need (or necessarily want) a SOA vendor to dot every I and cross every T for you. The RESTful Services Gateway seeks to go beyond offering the typical one-off solution approach to dealing with REST services by focusing on manageability, agility, and principles that facilitate reuse. It also illustrates that leaving "The how" up to the tool purchaser is not necessarily a product weakness.
