RESTful Java with JAX-RS 2.0, 2nd Edition
Designing and Developing Distributed Web Services
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: November 2013
Pages: 392

Learn how to design and develop distributed web services in Java, using RESTful architectural principles and the JAX-RS 2.0 specification in Java EE 7. By focusing on implementation rather than theory, this hands-on reference demonstrates how easy it is to get started with services based on the REST architecture.

With the book’s technical guide, you’ll learn how REST and JAX-RS work and when to use them. The RESTEasy workbook that follows provides step-by-step instructions for installing, configuring, and running several working JAX-RS examples, using the JBoss RESTEasy implementation of JAX-RS 2.0.

  • Learn JAX-RS 2.0 features, including a client API, server-side asynchronous HTTP, and filters and interceptors
  • Examine the design of a distributed RESTful interface for an e-commerce order entry system
  • Use the JAX-RS Response object to return complex responses to your client (ResponseBuilder)
  • Increase the performance of your services by leveraging HTTP caching protocols
  • Deploy and integrate web services within Java EE7, servlet containers, EJB, Spring, and JPA
  • Learn popular mechanisms to perform authentication on the Web, including client-side SSL and OAuth 2.0

      Comments about oreilly RESTful Java with JAX-RS 2.0, 2nd Edition:

      Until now I have only read half of the book. It is a very good starting point and reference for REST in Java. The huge number of examples makes this less dry and it's great to have working code when your own is erroneous. With the help of this book I made my own little project support REST in two days.

        Comments about oreilly RESTful Java with JAX-RS 2.0, 2nd Edition:

        I really like the way that this book covers readers that are new to the world of REST services but also addresses some more advanced parts for experienced ones.

        The book is well written and can be followed very easily. It includes several examples that can help the reader comprehend better how things work.

        Chapters stick to their target and the author is not hasty to introduce more advanced techniques (or even some time easier ones) in order to make the reader start from the very basics and have a spherical knowledge of the topic.

        Highly recommended book for everyone.

          Comments about oreilly RESTful Java with JAX-RS 2.0, 2nd Edition:

          The book is divided into two parts, over a dozen short chapters in each. The first part includes a very nice introduction to REST, has a great systematic reference over the API and finally a few words on integration with various frameworks, security, caching etc. The second chapter is basically a workbook – there is downloadable code with a few examples for each chapter, and these chapters basically are a detailed walk through.

          The author is careful not to get ahead of himself and starts quite slow, introducing the more advanced, automated and magical features step by step. As a result, the book is a great introduction for complete newcomers. But it doesn't stop there – it discusses all the more advanced features as well (later), with the same depth and clarity. That makes it a great reference and a cookbook that you're likely to get back to as use the API in your work.

          Everything is well thought out and executed. It's a very easy read, with each chapter stating the problem that it's trying to solve, following up with presentation of the relevant part of the API and a number of practical examples. If for some reason you need more, you're free to explore the workbook or complete running code.

          Highly recommended.
