i was reading below that rest webservices put is for creating

I remember reading some where POST is for create and PUT is to update.

can you please advise which HTTP method for which?

Sr.No.      HTTP Method      URI      Operation      Operation Type
1      GET      /UserService/users      Get list of users      Read Only
2      GET      /UserService/users/1      Get User with Id 1      Read Only
3      PUT      /UserService/users/2      Insert User with Id 2      Idempotent
4      POST      /UserService/users/2      Update User with Id 2      N/A
5      DELETE      /UserService/users/1      Delete User with Id 1      Idempotent
6      OPTIONS      /UserService/users      List the supported operations in web service      Read Only
why it says operation type for POST is N/A where as put is idempotent. what it means?

for working on rest examples why we need both below entries


below is fine

but why we need cxf as below as well in pom.xml?
