You can either use Apache Wink or JERSEY.

...and then there are:
JBoss RESTeasy:
I am sure there are others too...
I would recommend using a framework that supports the JAX-RS standard, with the associated annotations which makes developing a RESTful web service quite easy.
Best wishes!

You can use jax-ws WebServiceProvider to develope a restful service.
Here's an interesting link that shows how to use xml beans with a jax-ws rest service.

I don't know how Jax-ws compares to Jax-RS mentioned above or which is better. But I messed with it and got it to work.
