Thank you Sumanth, i think i'll go with rest, it seems easier and
lighter... do you know if wadl is needed? or is it possible to give just
the xml as response (as is doing with other requests)?

p.s. actually i don't know the requirements, i'm just looking on which
is the best practice to develop a web service :slight_smile:
