Hello everyone,

I am quite new with RESTful web services (not with SOAP-based WS), but I have been reading and researching a lot. The point is that there are a lot of tools and frameworks and I am confused.

I have to build a RESTful web service that retrieve an Employee resource in XML and JSON formats. Data for the Employee resources are given in txt files and the schema for the XML response "employee.xsd" is also given.

I have to use Java.

Any idea where can I start from?

Thanks in advance

For the starters try to understand what RESTful is all about. Following articles may help you in that. They will also give you reasonable points from where you can take clue to begin your application.
