Overview

Learn how to design and develop distributed web services in Java using RESTful architectural principals and the JAX-RS specification in Java EE 6. With this hands-on reference, you'll focus on implementation rather than theory, and discover why the RESTful method is far better than technologies like CORBA and SOAP. It's easy to get started with services based on the REST architecture. RESTful Java with JAX-RS includes a technical guide that explains REST and JAX-RS, how they work, and when to use them. With the RESTEasy workbook that follows, you get step-by-step instructions for installing, configuring, and running several working JAX-RS examples using the JBoss RESTEasy implementation of JAX-RS.

  • Work on the design of a distributed RESTful interface, and develop it in Java as a JAX-RS service

  • Dispatch HTTP requests in JAX-RS, and learn how to extract information from them

  • Deploy your web services within Java Enterprise Edition using the Application class, Default Component Model, EJB Integration, Spring Integration, and JPA

  • Discover several options for securing your web services

  • Learn how to implement RESTful design patterns using JAX-RS

  • Write RESTful clients in Java using libraries and frameworks such as java.net.URL, Apache HTTP Client, and RESTEasy Proxy

It is good for one to get started with java REST based services but skirts around complex real world scenarios and examples are not all that too great - quite often had to google for solutions.

If you need to get up to speed with REST and JAVA in a hurry, this is a great place to start.  Bill writes extremely well and takes time to explain concepts and not leave you guessing.  The style of writing is easy and not intimidating yet the coverage of REST concepts is fairly complete.  I would recommend this book to anyone needing to get started with REST.
