I briefly mentioned in the end of this post that we are working on the tooling for creating RESTful endpoints in Talend Open Studio for ESB.
I'd like to offer to your attention my first screen-cast available on the Talend Channel. It shows how one create and test a basic HTTP Service endpoint echoing the POST payload back to the client. I timed it all for some fun, so it actually did took me 60 seconds to create a service and about 60 seconds to test it.
Of course one would spend much more time on developing a more involved service but the idea was to give you a glimpse of how easy you can create a RESTful service as well as to point to the flexibility of the tooling as far as wiring the extra components in is concerned.
Future presentations will show how to create more involved services, those supporting multiple HTTP verbs, with more components facilitating the access to the real data.
Please listen to this short presentation, download the Studio and try creating your own HTTP service and also check what it offers with respect to working with SOAP services and Camel routes.
Oh yes, one more thing, if you are into languages and you'd like to hear what an Irish-Belorussian accent is about :-), then please listen indeed to this screen-cast
