3 reasons not to use REST

Posted by Vivek on January 17, 2013

Here are a few reasons why RESTful services can be avoided:

1. REST is not a good choice when the way client application use service require high degree of control.

2. It is required to use vendor based tools to generate client stubs or server skeletons.

3. There is a need for coarser granularity to reduce the number of network calls.

In addition, advanced security controls and standards cannot be used. Exposing data can be dangerous sometimes.
