IBM WebSphere CTO Jerry Cuomo talks about Project Zero and how the REST framework being developed in it will impact enterprise service-oriented architecture (SOA) by extending it out into Web-oriented architecture.When SearchWebServices last talked to Jerry Cuomo, CTO for IBM WebSphere, in May he talked about the emergence of REST and Web-based SOA. Since then he has become a champion for Project Zero, an incubator for a REST-based framework for Web SOA that is now in beta and moving toward an as yet unnamed product release in 2008. While it is not an open source project, IBM is making it transparent for customers and developers, so they can watch Big Blue design and build new Web tools. In his blog on the Project Zero site, which provides a window into the project, Cuomo explains that the environment includes a scripting runtime for Groovy and PHP with application programming interfaces optimized for producing REST-style services, integration mash-ups and rich Web interfaces. In this interview he discusses what he's been blogging about and how the Project Zero approach may change the way developers and architects view at service-oriented architecture (SOA).
