Hi Malte

Andre Garcia has published a lightweight REST library with which you easily use to provide a REST service. It's called revspark ( http://andregarzia.com/pages/en/revspark/ ) and is modelled on Ruby's Sinatra.

Personally, I think that REST is the way to go so that you can avoid all the heavy, boilerplating required by SOAP (though I'm no expert_.

By the way, what is a web service other than a web site which returns XML or JSON (or CSV data) instead of HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

I need to OFFER webservice, instead of retrieving data from existing ones. So here is the question… Has anybody of you done this already? Is there some sort of library that could be used? When I am looking at this I see a lot of work coming up and makes me peeking jealously at JAVA, where a Webservice comes out of the box so to speak.
