Simple Article on REST Using WCF

For a few days, I have been trying a lot to understand why people would be using RESTful instead of the standard SOAP based Web Services. I thought, I could better understand by building one little RESTfully architected application myself.

After a few google searches, I found that WCF has some attribute based programming support for implementing a RESTful architecture. MSDN has a good document on the whole WebGet and WebInvoke attributes. However, the article on shows nearly the simplest implementation of a mini RESTful architecture. I think, one might take a look at the article and get a good head-start!
