REST or SOAP for java application integration?

Hey all,
New to RT, and I’m trying to integrate it’s well-respected ticketing
system with an internal Java Application (just some change-management
stuff) for ticket creation, maybe some other smaller things. As I
understand, there are some discussions around either a REST or a SOAP
interface – but I can not seem to find any solid information.

I’ve glossed over the ‘online documentation’/wiki, as well as the
following e-mail threads:

http://gossamer-threads.com/lists/rt/users/34655?search_string=rest;#346

http://gossamer-threads.com/lists/rt/users/43852?search_string=rest;#438

http://gossamer-threads.com/lists/rt/users/27317?search_string=soap;#273
17
http://gossamer-threads.com/lists/rt/users/23404?search_string=soap;#234

Does anyone have a solid pointer to REST or SOAP documentation,
preferably something that is ‘formal’ for version 3.x that is not likely
to change for several versions?

Thanks,
-D

updated research for those interested. Basically, ‘aint ready’.
