Web Application Description Language (WADL) is a machine process-able XML description of HTTP-based Web applications, such as REST web services.


Web Service Description Language (WSDL) is an XML based, human- and machine-readable language used to describe a web service



I think wsdl is not appropriate for rest and wadl is not necessary;http exposes already what wadl could describe in a separate file

from question  

REST web service WSDL?

Like the rest of rest wadl is lightweight easier to understand and easier to write than wsdl

from question  

Difference between WSDL 2.0, WADL & XRD?

Wadl is much simpler;so the difference is remote execution ws wsdl vs resource rest wadl

from question  

Creating a WADL and WSDL in Java?
