Why is RESTful design important to you?

Because SOA and microservices architecture are becoming a mainstream. Good design means better testability and maintainability.

That's interesting composition of questions. I wonder why such fundamental things like REST vs. SOAP, XML vs. JSON, weren't covered.

Hi Albert,

The questions are always based on what my latest site content is, so that is why the specific topics you mentioned were not, unfortunately, included in this quiz. However, we have gone into the REST vs. SOAP debate on our site before, for instance here in this guide we produced on REST:

Thanks for your comments.
