A CDE Definition
(Web Application Description Language) A language for describing "RESTful" Web services. WADL is similar to WSDL but designed for Web services that comply with the REST architecture. See REST.
(1) Rest and relaxation. See digital vacation.
(2) (REpresentational State Transfer) A software architecture for activating services over the Web. Introduced in 2000 by Roy Fielding, one of the authors of HTTP, REST is used to request services and return responses over the Web, commonly known as Web services.
Considered a simpler approach to Web services than the more complex and formal SOAP protocol, "RESTful" Web services make use of standard HTTP verbs, URIs and Internet media types. Requests are made via HTTP, and data is returned in XML, JSON or other data formats. REST concepts predate SOAP but were brought back into focus after developers gained experience with SOAP implementations. See HTTP, URI, Internet media type, WADL and SOAP.
