"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use Spring tool Suite (STS) for spring development. It is based on eclipse only.

Inside it's Help you will found lot's of option for creating web services.

For basics of Spring web services you may refer,

You can also see JAX-WS + Spring integration example here,

Your core spring jars dependency needs to be uptodate along with versions,

1) For webservices development alone, what level of expertise you need to have with Spring?
2) What in addition you need to study in order that one would be able to write webservices that would return json?

For web services you should know XSD, WSDL, SOAP. You should have basic knowledge of Spring Syntax & API. i.e Spring Core API.


2) What in addition you need to study in order that one would be able to write webservices that would return json?
You can use Restful web services in SPRING
