Hi All,

I want to build (demo) a restful web service in java. To achieve this from where i need to start?

What are the things to be downloaded from java web site?

Can i deploy my developed web service in plain tomcat web server?

Do i need to configure anything in web.xml?

I have such basic questions with me. Can any one help me to progress?

You'll probably want to use a library such as the JSR 311 reference implementation Jersey ( Jersey's Getting Started page ( is a useful starting point for using Jersey. Other good resources for building REST applications with Java include Sun's RESTful Web Services (, REST for Java Developer's (, and Restlet for the Weary ( Restlet ( is another library that one could use to implement a Java-based REST web service.
