RESTful Webservice - What are the different ways to create it ?
Joined: Mar 04, 2008
I want to know different ways of creating RESTful webservice.
Like a SOAP service can be created using
Axis , Axis2 , and other implementations. Also certain APIs- JAX -WS , JAX-RPC, JAXB, etc. are available.
Similarly, for REST, JAX -RS is available and one reference implementation - Jersey.
Query is - Can a REST based web service be created simply by using JAX -RS API , without Jersey ?
Please ignore , for such a dummy question.

There are many implementations of the JAX-RS standard. Apart from Jersey, there is also Apache CXF and JBoss RESTeasy. Perhaps there are additional frameworks that now escapes my mind.
As far as I recall, the Restlets framework also implements JAX-RS.
Note that each framework also provide more or less additional functionality outside of the specification.
