New to web service

Dear All,

I am new to Web Service. I want to create a RESTful webservice and a client to access the service.

I have few basic queries:

1) Is webservice client for a RESTful and SOAP service different ? I think client can be generic and should be able to access any type of web service. Please reply if this is correct.

2) For RESTful services,(JAX-RS) API is available and a reference implementation - Jersey. I want to create the web service without using Jersey implementation as I dont want to take overhead of Jersey libraries. Is it possible?

Please refer a minimal basic RESTful web service implementation and a client.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Please do not post the same question multiple times. Let's continue the discussion in this duplicate thread.
