Naming My Delphi REST Extension Project

I'm close to release the alpha version of an open project aimed at extending the Delphi XE REST Server infrastructure. One of the problems is to find a suitable name for the project itself.

I'm close to releasing the alpha version of an open project aimed at extending the Delphi XE REST Server infrastructure (part of DataSnap). I've already mentioned this in my blog, and plan to disclose it at the time of my webinar on the development on REST Server Applications in Delphi XE, scheduled for next Thursday and hosted by Embarcadero.

The project aims to simplify REST systems development by offering JavaScript / jQuery code generation to help client-side development, based on attribute-based rules tied to Delphi objects; offer a skeletal ActiveRecord implementation; add a slightly modified session management mechanism and some more goodies; include minimal server-side HTML customization and generation, rather that using PageProducer custom tags. More details will follow soon.

Now, one of the problems I have is to find a suitable name for the project itself. The only names I though of are:

  • Delphi Rest Plus: bare, I know, but simple
  • DWARF (Delphi Web Application Rest Framework): a name I used for a past "scrapped" project
  • jDR (jQuery for Delphi Rest): too many hyped terms at once
  • jDelphi (as above)
  • ...

I guess avoiding any trademark (Delphi, jQuery) would be better, in general, but I don't think it is necessary. 

Do you have any better ideas? Easily I guess... I'm all ears!

You can go for... 

"REST in Peace"... no, no, I am joking. :)

But maybe you can name it
"REST in Queries" :)

I think I am too much funerary...

What do you think about
"All the REST"? :)

The main subject is REST, surrounded with a Delphi 
context. Maybe a good name could be dREST. 'd' as a 
symbol that the project runs at a Delphi perspective, 
like others as dUnit.

 Hi marco
my suggest is:

XDRest (Extension of Delphi REST)
or 
xdRest with other type.

 It's difficult to name something we don't know.
But more names for the library:

Datasnap JQuery Extensions or DQuery

I'm currently opting for "Delphi Relax" (Delphi REst 
LAyer eXtension). Relax really sounds REST-full, easy to 
remember, not too overloaded (in technology).

Still one day before I decide...
