Developing Restful Services with REST/JAX-RS
This course provides in-depth coverage of REST principles and building RESTful services using the JAX-RS 2.0 API. It includes a brief overview of SOAP-based services and WSDL, to provide a contrast to RESTful services. You will emerge from the course with a full understanding of the HTTP protocol and its vision of the “original web,” and how these ideas are implemented in RESTful applications. We’ll show you how to handle the most common types of request input, culminating in the transmission of HTTP entities in both XML and JSON format, in line with the original intention of HTTP. You’ll also learn how to create appropriate responses given a variety of inputs and conditions, according to the guidelines and principles in the HTTP standard.
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Understand the purpose and role of web services in general, and how they are architected to expose business systems and processes over the web
- Expanded knowledge of HTTP, including its full set of methods and their intended uses, important headers, response codes, and content types
- Understand REST APIs, including resource identifiers and the URI namespace, resources and subresources, and WADL
- Understand configuration, deployment, and runtime environment, including per-request and singleton objects, options for dependency injection, etc.
- Understand how HTTP requests get dispatched to service methods
- Understand content negotiation and the importance of Accept and Content-Type headers, and how they impact method dispatching
- Exchange business data by communicating in HTTP entities in both XML and JSON format
- Handle errors using Java exceptions and appropriate HTTP response codes
- Learn how to integrate JAX-RS services with other Java EE technologies like servlets, EJB, and CDI, and how JAX-RS fits into the larger Java EE landscape
- Write Java clients using the JAX-RS 2.0 Client API, including standalone clients and server-side components invoking remote services
