Hello Friends,


For one of my project I'm thinking of developing Web service using RESTful architecture.

I just wanted to know about JDk 1.4 support for RESTful web service. I can see the some examples in internet but all with Annotations.


I'm yet to dig into the details, before that i would like to know your inputs.


Thanks

Jersey an implementation of JAX-RS (JSR-311) which is Sun's standard framework for implementing RESTful web services and it requires at least Java SE 5.

Restlet 1.0.11 also requires Java SE 5 but its code seems to be able to run on the 1.4 JVM if you use Retroweaver
readme.txt wrote:
Dependencies
* For all applications: Java SE 5.0 or above. JDK 1.4 support is also available via Retroweaver.


Ultimately "RESTful" is a design approach that harmonizes with the way the Web is supposed to work. So after assimilating the content of RESTful Web Services a reasonably competent servlet developer should be able to build a site that exposes RESTful web services - though it is going to take a bit more effort (and discipline) compared to using one of the above mentioned frameworks.
