unRESTful Web Services with HTTP2

Am 13. November 2015 hielt Fabian Stäber im Rahmen der Conference Sessions einen Vortrag zum Thema „unRESTful Web Services with HTTP2“ – in englischer Sprache.


HTTP/2, the new version of the HTTP protocol, provides a lot of new features for server-to-server communication:

  • bidirectional communication using push requests
  • multiplexing within a single TCP connection
  • long running connections
  • stateful connections

HTTP/2 does not define a JavaScript API, so JavaScript clients running in a Web browser can make only limited use of the new capabilities. However, for server-to-server communication, HTTP/2 provides a lot of ways to go beyond existing REST APIs. This talk shows HTTP/2's potential for new server-to-server APIs.
