REST in pieces

Should go forward or back, or just REST in one place. Who knows what way to go.

I have to admit that I didn’t even know that HTTP spec had methods like DELETE… well, or perhaps I’ve heard about them but due to lack of need for such they have faded into oblivion.

Authentication is clearly not piece of cake or walk in the park:
InfoQ: RESTful API Authentication Schemes
Principles for Standardized REST Authentication
REST based authentication
How to implement RESTful authentication
Stackoverflow: Security of REST authentication schemes

For API versioning, well, there is some kind of concept ideas:

It may that betting into REST ain’t anyway “future compatible”, at least in some contexts:
