Join Alex Theedom for an in-depth discussion in this video REST introduction, part of RESTful Service with JAX-RS 2.0.
- [Instructor] REST means Representational State Transfer…and combines the use of URLs and HTTP verbs,…such as post and get, to represent and transfer resources.…Now what do I mean by resources?…Well, often this boils down to the serialization…of a POJO represented as a JSON string.…It's not part of the design pattern that the resource…must be represented as JSON.…We could just well use XML.…However, it has become convention for common use…and in this course, we will use JSON.…Developing RESTful API is as much an art…as it is a science.…
And how to do so well is a course unto itself.…So, I will not be covering principles of good…or bad design, specifically, I will focus on the…actual mechanism of writing the code that implements…your already well designed API and to show you how…to use the JAX-RS API to make it easy to implement…a REST server and client.…But before we get to the nitty gritty, let's have…a quick reminder of what REST and RESTful APIs actually…look like.…So, a RESTful URI that represents a book resource…
Join Alex Theedom as he guides you through a wide range of topics, including how to define resource endpoints, how to add dynamism to your application with hypermedia, how to maintain data integrity with Bean Validation, and how to process messages with the JSON Processing API. Once you have completed this course, you'll be ready to develop your own client and server RESTful APIs.
