I have developed SOAP based webservices in java JAX on the basis of a WSDL file. I am however confused about what RESTful webservices are do they require wsdl ??? Are they easier to develop ?? How are they different ?? any help or suggestions would be appreciated..

RESTful servces do not use WSDL; a simpler alternative called WADL exists, but is not generally used by all REST toolkits. The WebServicesFaq contains a number of articles about REST and its differences to SOAP.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
