Hi All,

I tried webservices using axis 1.5 where it uses JAX-RCP1.1 and everything went well.

No I want to learn webservices using REST as I heard REST are light weight.

Could some please let me know what are things i need to download to run on eclipse. is there any plugin for quick start?

Thanks & regards,
Sarada

I believe, REST is an architectural style of desigining your webservices. You need to design your webservices in a fashion that reflects REST philosophy. You may not get any software for REST. Please use your existing webservices software to achieve REST implementation.

REST deserves a fresh start.

I believe that both the Jersey toolkit and the Restlet toolkit have plugin support in Eclipse.

You might want to review the Web Services FAQ here at the ranch for an overview.
