Learn how to develop a simple RESTful web service and REST client with the Java EE JAX-RS 2.0 API.
- [Alex] One of the most worldly used API's in the Java E specification is JAX-RS. With its annotation-driven configuration model, it is the easiest and most natural way to implement restful architectural patterns. Hi, I'm Alex Theedom. I am passionate about Java Enterprise edition. It's a powerful and light-weight ecosystem, and I have been developing applications with it for well over 10 years. In this course, you will learn how to develop both restful and server applications. You will learn how to create and test resource endpoints, how to add hypermedia to resources in order to make your restful API dynamic, how data integrity is ensured by implementing the bean validation API, and how validation failures are handled.
You'll learn how to use media types such as JSON, and how the JSON processing API integrates with JAX-RS. By the end of this course, you can expect to be comfortable creating and using JAX-RS to develop a simple, fully functioning restful API. Well I hope you're ready, so let's get started.
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.
