I have tried creating REST project and by default the output comes out as JSON. Can any one please suggest how can we get XML as a response to a REST Service ?

No i didn't mean Webspeed.  i mean the REST service which we can create using the latest OpenEdge release. By default it gives the response in JSON format, but i need to get the response as XML.

As of now, Progress REST service supports only JSON format.

I understood …
 
The REST Adapter does not support that.
 
You can implement GET and POST Rest calls with WebSpeed.

I believe that only JSON is currently supported as a media type. The closest doc I can find to support that is http://documentation.progress.com/output/OpenEdge115/openedge115/#page/dvwsv/output-parameter-mapping.html# .

One solution (if applicable in your case) it would be to proxy the REST calls through a server that makes the translation between xml -> json.

Using nodejs with xml2js plus restify, for instance, you could have a quick solution to get xml in restify, parse it to json and send it to tomcat and retrieve the reply same way.

It is definetely not a nice solution but if you have to support XML can be used as a workaround (even that JSON is the way to go and you should migrate to that).

Regards,
