Video duration: 0s 2h 25m Intermediate


Most Java EE APIs are presentation-oriented. But there's another category of service-oriented features that provide data and other services to mobile and desktop "rich" applications. This course explores web services: the concepts, syntax, commands, and tools that allow you to communicate and share data between applications. Author Patrick Royal explores protocols like SOAP and REST and shares simple programming tips for writing web services that are as efficient as possible. He also reveals his favorite extensions for increasing the compatibility of your services. This course includes a series of hands-on practice activities (challenges) that let you test your understanding along the way.

Topics include:
  • What are Java EE web services?
  • Creating a simple service
  • Building, packaging, and deploying your service
  • Understanding the basic syntax
  • Working with WSDL (Web Service Definition Language)
  • Exploring SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol)
  • Exploring the syntax and design of REST (Representation State Transfer)
  • Programming a web service in Java EE
  • Debugging and optimizing your code


- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Patrick Royal, and welcome to Building Web Services with Java EE. In this course, we'll explore the core features and ways of thinking that will serve you well as you create and use web services. We'll cover the basics of setting up a simple web service, we'll learn about syntax, commands, and the various tools available. More importantly, though, we'll also explore some of the basic concepts behind web services, why you should use them, and how to take advantage of the unique features available through a web-based approach. We'll look at the different protocols used for designing web services, such as SOAP and REST, and the advantages and disadvantages of each one.

And finally, we'll learn about some of the extensions to web services that can increase your compatibility and integration. By the end of this course, you can expect to be comfortable creating and using a basic web service. So let's get ready for some coding with Building Web Services with Java EE.
