Modeling and Managing Pervasive Computing Spaces using RESTful Data Services

This paper advocates the use of RESTful data services in pervasive computing environments. REST is a restriction of web services to a simple protocol centered on a limited set of access operations against data resources. This paper outlines how REST may be used as a general design principle for pervasive computing environments. It additionally describes our implementation of a pervasive computing environment, called Celadon, which uses these design principles.
