everest features in a nutshell:
- A resource declaration framework that allows you to expose an entity domain model through a REST application;
- Extensible views for performing standard CRUD operations on resources in response to REST requests;
- Representers that convert resources to string representations and vice versa for a number of MIME types (XML, ATOM, CSV, JSON);
- A repository layer permitting per-resource configuration of the storage backend to use (memory for testing, file system for small data volumes, relational database for large data volumes);
- A query language for expressing complex hierarchical queries on the resource object tree through URLs;
- A Flex client (distributed separately);
