Nice REST post

Joe Gregorio: RESTify DayTrader.

Why build a RESTful web service for DayTrader? Because I frequently hear that REST can't be applied to complex situations. I also want to use the example as motivation for talking about some of the idioms that are available to handle more extensive requirements.

Hey, I'm curious about what your thoughts are in the context of the REST solution described with respect to 1) reliability being supplied by a framework rather than the application and 2) the concept of putting all application state in each request with respect to application fabrics or "processing grids".

The reason I ask is when I read that article I was thinking, "Hey with Appistry's fabric you don't have to do some of this and you still get reliability." And then the concept of building a completely stateless application also fits nicely on an application fabric or "processing grid" since it leads to natural concurrency.
