Using Web Services
Mule is designed to facilitate the use of Web services in the following ways:
Web services can be hosted or consumed
Transport decoupled from protocol, that is, you can send / receive over JMS, email, etc.
JAX-WS or Simple services
Web services can be proxied or modified without much code

RESTpack - Provides support for building RESTful services inside Mule. You can also use the REST service wrapper (a specialized Mule service component) in the HTTP transport to proxy REST-style requests to external REST/HTTP services. This wrapper component acts as a REST client and is appropriate if you do not have strict REST requirements.
