SOAP Web Services have a well established role in the enterprise, but aside from the many benefits of the WS-* standards, SOAP and XML also carry additional baggage for developers. Consequently, REST Web Services are gaining tremendous popularity within the developer community. This session will begin by comparing and contrasting the basic concepts of both SOAP and REST Web Services. Building on that foundation, Sam Brannen will show attendees how to implement SOAP-based applications using Spring-WS 2.0. He will then demonstrate how to build a similar REST-ful application using Spring MVC 3.0. The session will conclude with an in-depth look at both server-side and client-side development as well as efficient integration testing of Web Services using the Spring Framework.
