More REST goodness
Alex James is at it again, his latest post hits on a point that I hadn't really thought about explicitly but is totally the way I want the world to work. The key to implementing something like this is to understand that physical HTTP Endpoints for our REST service are just wrappers around an internal endpoints that have URIs too… Why? So you can still program RESTfully inside the server without ever needing to incur a network roundtrip etc. And that is simply what the Transaction end point does: ......

Example code

If you write code examples please do not assume the user is using ASP.Net Web Forms. They may be using WinForms or the most excellent MonoRail.

For example, say you are a payment gateway, please don't assume that I am using ASP.Net webforms. I would much rather see code in a Unit Test framework like NUnit rather than behind an ASP.Net Web Forms page.
