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.
