What is a REST Web Service
The acronym REST stands for Representational State Transfer, this basically means that each unique URL is a representation of some object. You can get the contents of that object using an HTTP GET, to delete it, you then might use a POST, PUT, or DELETE to modify the object (in practice most of the services use a POST for this).
What Toolkits are for REST
REST is not a standard. You will not see the W3 putting out a REST specification. You will not see IBM or Microsoft or Sun selling a REST developer's toolkit. Why? Because REST is just an architectural style. You can't bottle up that style. You can only understand it, and design your Web services in that style.
While REST is not a standard, it does prescribe the use of standards:
HTTP
URL
XML/HTML/GIF/JPEG/etc (Resource Representations)
text/xml, text/html, image/gif, image/jpeg, etc (Resource Types, MIME Types)
