Almost any method with almost any signature can be annotated to handle a web request. Although this is nice for writing RESTless controllers, it is not ideal for writing RESTful controllers. The reason is that controllers ...

At the core SOA is the idea of building system via a common set of core services rather than the traditional monolithic method. Java and web services have been intimately intwined. There are a number of options are available for working with web services in Java. Spring facilitates the integration of many of these options. In fact, Spring provides support for publishing and consuming ...
