Currently there are two different ways to build RESTful services with CXF.
- HTTP Binding: The HTTP binding provides a flexible way of creating resources and mapping them to operations in your service. This can currently be done via annatotations or a convention based mapping.
- JAX-WS Provider and Dispatch: It is possible to create simple RESTful services with the JAX-WS Provider and Dispatch APIs. It is not as flexible as the HTTP binding, but does use standard APIs.
