REST version of SeachAPI ?

Hi I was under the impression that Ebay did have a Rest version of the search API, but I can't find any documentation about that. Does it mean I'm stuck with SOAP ? Thanks

Thanks for the answer. Documentation of 'Finding API' found here http://developer.ebay.com/Devzone/finding/Concepts/FindingAPIGuide.html doesn't mention REST, so I guess I have to use the non-REST way for it. According to http://developer.ebay.com/Devzone/rest/buy/content/browse/overview.html only 'Sell API' and 'Buy API' are RESTful. Do we know if ebay is actually going to port all their APIs to REST ?

***Documentation of 'Finding API' found here http://developer.ebay.com/Devzone/finding/Concepts/FindingAPIGuide.html doesn't mention REST*** Yes it does " If you are using name-value syntax for a REST-style request...." ***According to http://developer.ebay.com/Devzone/rest/buy/content/browse/overview.html only 'Sell API' and 'Buy API' are RESTful.*** It doesn't say that. It just indicates that Buy and Sell are REST APIs. Doesn't seem like you are clear on what REST is. If you read the page you linked to you'll find more mention of REST. The name-value, JSON POST and XML POST are all REST options. http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/finding/Concepts/MakingACall.html
