news and thoughts on and around the development of the iCite net

Internet as REST OS, as REST RDBMS

Very, very interesting: 1060 NetKernel (via Marc's Voice and Jon Udell). The 1060 NetKernel is described as:

NetKernel is a Java-based virtual REST operating system for internet applications. NetKernel is a scalable microkernel which implements a modular REST abstraction in which all software components are URI addressable REST-services.

What I have been working on as the prototype for the iCite net (mainly what I call the iCite Container application) has some similar concepts in it, namely that the components of the system are essentially URI addressable services. What I have tried to do is nowhere remotely near as comprehensive as the 1060 NetKernel, and I'll have to explore NetKernel to see if I could use it right away as the "REST OS" for the iCite Container prototype.

My main focus has been on an abstraction of URI addresses that is more loosely associated with protocols, which I call CRI (and, for those who have been following this blog for a while: CRIs are based on the iCite net's CNS, which is a name service that abstracts addresses from domain names). And, this goes along with the idea of using resources on the network / Internet like a REST RDBMS.

RDBMS have operators, which are like addressable components. So, in the iCite net, components are accessed through CRI addresses and generally REST-like operations. This is where I think the NetKernel would fit in.
