I'm not familiar with the rest support in axis2 and how well it aligns 
with the general REST architectural style. I have used the restlet 
framework on other projects and have been happy with it. The abstraction 
of REST concepts (Resources, URIs and Representations) are relatively 
good and the support is first class.

I have put together a straw man rest application, which i have deployed 
on the geronimo along with ode and with some help from Alex was able to 
connect to the process manager and retrieve a list of process models 
using some thing like /processes/models.
