This tutorial does not go into the concepts of ReST and why you would want to use it. I assume you are here because you want to implement it with Railo.
I will start out with a brain dump of the things I have discovered during my development of a ReSTful API. I will then flesh out with examples.
Check out the features page on Rest introduction in Railo 4 beta

Please leave comments for anything you would like covered or explained in detail.
Whilst there is no one right way to building a ReSTful API, there seems to plenty of wrong ways. I will simply delete any comments which I feel are non-constuctive, trolling or flame bait.
