Adding RSS to A (Spring) Web Service

We're going to be adding RSS feeds to our Spring Web Services.

Having never used RSS, I just looked at some of the online resources (for example, 'http://www.vogella.com/articles/RSSFeed/article.html'), but I'm still confused.

When you set up an RSS feed, is this done separately from a traditional web service or are you just returning an XML structure? Looking at the RSS code, it looks quite a bit more complex than that.

Would an RSS feed be separate from a web service or could it be handled using the same XML Request (if say there were an element that said <RSS>, or something)?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or insights on how to start wrapping my head around this.
