I'm implementing a restful service automation tool for client applications. Basically, the tool takes a config file that defines restful resources, and creates some DTOs and resource classes for client to use. But I need a standard for this config file. WSDL seems well known, but it was intended to use with soap, and for me it seems clunky. I, on the other hand, could invent my own standard, but it reminds me of this situation:
So, maybe there is an existing nice standard that covers my use-case? Or should I implement my own?
