Hi ranchers,

I need to learn REST based Web Service to work with Spring. Will someone please provide me some link for some good starters for that. I've read a couple of it and didn't quite get it.

Hi!
Which web service stack do you want to use?
Apache CXF can do RESTful web services and works well with Spring. In fact, Spring is used internally in Apache CXF: http://cxf.apache.org/
RESTlet is a small and flexible framework for developing RESTful web services. Works very well with Spring: http://www.restlet.org/
Jersey, the JAX-RS reference implementation, also has Spring integration: https://jersey.dev.java.net/
JBoss RESTEasy also has Spring integration: http://www.jboss.org/resteasy

For the sake of simplicity, I would advice you to take a look at RESTlet. There are tutorials and documentation on their webpage.
With RESTlet you can develop stand-alone RESTful web services that does not need any container to run. The others may also be able to do this, but I have only done it with RESTlet.
Best wishes!
