An increasing amount of applications build their functionality on the utilization and manipulation of web resources. Consequently REST gains popularity with a resource-centric interaction architecture that draws its flexibility from links between resources. Linked data offers a uniform data model for REST with self-descriptive resources that can be leveraged to avoid a manual ad-hoc development of web-based applications. For declaratively specifying interactions between web resources the authors introduce data-fu, a lightweight declarative rule language with state transition systems as formal grounding.
