I'm new to webservices. Trying to make some of the existing assets to be available as service. To start with have List and Map hava data structures which needs to be handled in the request and response. Any pointers on how to take care of this is really appreciated.

Depending on the software you use, try to see the sample/tutorials on how java type objects were (de)serialized, that will get you started.
