What is difference between JAX-RS @QueryParam and @FormParam.
I am new to REST web service. Can we use together?

In REST Service, JAX-RS provides @QueryParam and @FormParam both for accepting data from HTTP request. An HTTP form can be submitted by different methods like GET and POST.
@QueryParam : Accepts GET request and reads data from query string.
@FormParam: Accepts POST request and fetches data from HTML form or any request of the media type application/x-www-form-urlencoded.
