RESTful Webservice

I have never written any sort of webservice, but an tasked to do so now. We have decided to use restlets. I need to write a certificate based authentication webservice, where the client will pass us criteria (guid, username, password, etc), and then we need to look up this data and see if the guid is valid, and the username/password are valid.

Any suggestions on where to start??

Thanks!

I'd presume that all custom authentication logic would operate in terms of the interfaces and classes found in the com.noelios.restlet.authentication package.
