Processing the Request/Response Payload
Note: if the payload is in the format of RDF or DAML then the client application may be able to dynamically learn the meaning of the response data.
As we saw earlier, with REST there are links to the next state built within each response. We hinted earlier at how a client application may be able to reason dynamically about which link to traverse. Thus, dynamic learning of response data combined with dynamic reasoning of link traversals would yield a self-reasoning automata. This is the next step of the Web!
