 <h2>Doing REST web services with HTTP POST</h2>
 
-<p>REST's default HTTP interface is POST. It can be enabled in the Server/Client side
by adding the following
-line to the axis2.xml file.</p>
-<font color="blue">&lt; parameter name="enableREST" locked="false" &gt;
-true &lt;/parameter&gt; </font>

+&lt;/parameter&gt; </font>
 
 <p>But it acts both as a REST endpoint as well as a SOAP endpoint. When a
-Message is received if the content type is text/xml and if the SOAP Action
+Message is received, if the content type is text/xml and if the SOAP Action
 Headers are missing, then the Message is treated as a RESTful Message. Else
-they are treated as usual SOAP Messages.</p>
+it is treated as a usual SOAP Message.</p>
 
 <p>On sending a message out, the fact that the message is RESTful or not, can
 be decided from the client API or by deployment descriptor of the client.</p>
 <ol>
   <li>By adding an entry in the client repositories axis2.xml file.</li>
   <li>Setting as a property in client API e.g. <source>
-    <pre>call.set(Constants.Configuration.ENABLE_REST,Constants.VALUE_TRUE);</pre>
+    <pre>...
+Options options = new Options();
+options.setProperty(Constants.Configuration.ENABLE_REST, Constants.VALUE_TRUE);
+...</pre>
     </source></li>
 </ol>
 
 <h3>Sample REST - HTTP POST Client</h3>
