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.

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!
