Hi i am new to REST, i am trying to develop an application in which we need to use REST with spring framework i want to ask should i go with using WSDL with this as we do for SOAP applications or does spring framework provides something similar.
I also need to expose the methods to different client applications with SOAP we do it using WSDL, how to proceed with spring and rest.
I know WSDL can be used with REST as well but i want to know if there is ant standard way while using REST with spring framework.

SOAP and REST are very different. You will find REST is much simpler. It also has great support in Spring 3.x. Have a look these links to get you started.
