Hi to all,

Today i read the description of WADL from wikipedia "The Web Application Description Language (WADL) is an XML-based file format that provides a machine-readable description of HTTP-based web applications".

Here what is the meaning of "Machine readable description of HTTP based web applications"?

Please help me

Thanks in advance

WADL is for RESTful WS what WSDL is for SOAP-based WS. I think it's primarily used for WS implemented in Java; its home can be found at http://wadl.java.net/. The JAX-RS reference implementation Jersey uses it.
