SOAP and REST tightly and loosely coupled
I have implemented SOAP webservices using JAX-WS and REST webservices using JERSEY. But I fail to see how SOAP is tightly coupled and REST is loosely coupled ??

As there is no standard definition of "tightly/loosely coupled", it would be easy to argue that both are tightly coupled, and it would be easy to argue that both are loosely coupled. I'd say that SOAP is more tightly coupled than REST because it specifies the data types to be used, whereas REST does not. That makes it a bit harder (but by no means impossible) to change the implementation without also changing the interface.
