REST Server: logical -> physical URI problems
I am writing a REST server, but struggling to see how I can dispatch the service calls correctly.
Currently I have a RewriteRule in .htaccess which redirects the REST compliant logical URI to my handler cgi script. The redirect works fine, but I am losing the parameters that were embedded in the logical URI.
There has to be a better way to do this (for performance reasons if nothing else) and there is next to nothing out there in terms of documentation.
I know that there is some Catalyst stuff for REST dispatching, but I don't want to go down that route if I can avoid it.
Anyone out there written a REST server ok? Can you provide any pointers?
Your help would be greatly appreciated!
(I thought REST was supposed to be *simpler* than SOAP!)
