Couple of helpful posts from the archives for you. If you are care about interop, then you probably want to use a contract-first or WSDL-first design for your web services.

REST Q & A - enough already
Tim Bray at Sun has some questions and comments on REST . First, let me say that the religious wars over WS-* and REST seem to be generated by a very small number of people who have a very large amount of spare time. Don't these people have things to do ? Can it possibly be enlightening or helpful...

I have come to a conclusion: I no longer want to deal with the hassle that has become Apache AXIS.
