Hi!

I need to use web services in my aplication, but I didn't decide which framework or api I use.
Which web services framework or api do you use or recomend?
Which web services framework is easy to use?

Thanks!

Do you have any experience programming Java-based web services?

This information will help determine which framework is best for you.

I just studied some tutorials(jax-ws, axis, RESTful) and I did simple web services.
I need web services to execute database queries.

Sounds good. You should use Apache Axis then.

I just studied some tutorials(jax-ws, axis, RESTful) and I did simple web services.


Aside, JAX-WS is an acronym and when used in a sentence, all of the letters should be in upper-case. Axis is a name and the first letter should be capitalized.

A good habit is to write correctly. Proper grammar and correct spelling is very important when writing about software.

Good luck!

Axis (an implementation) supports JAX-WS (an API), so you should be in good shape.

I have used axis and spring web services. If you are comfortable with spring framework, i would recommend using spring web services rather than axis as development is quicker in spring web services and is lot more cleaner. But then maven knowledge is also recommended.

James,
sorry for my English, I'm brazilian and I have some difficulty.

I said JAX-WS because I used it with the tools apt and wsimport that are into jdk 6. I used JAX-WS without frameworks. But I know JAX-WS is an API and the frameworks use it.

Thank you for your suggestions!
