Restful Java with Jax-RS
Synopses & Reviews
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.
Book News Annotation:
Focusing on implementation rather than theory, this tutorial/reference shows how to design and develop distributed web services in Java using RESTful architectural principles on top of the HTTP protocol. It also offers a reference guide on the JAX-RS specification, which is a JCP standardized annotation framework for writing RESTful web services in Java. Part I is a technical manuscript on REST and the JAX-RS standard. It explains what REST and JAX-RS are, and how to apply JAX-RS to build RESTful web services. Part II is a JAX-RS workbook with instructions for installing, configuring, and running the JAX-RS examples from Part I with the JBoss RESTEasy framework. Readers should be familiar with writing Java EE applications; if not, some experience with web application development, HTTP, and XML is a plus. Readers should also be fluent in the Java language.

The RESTful approach to developing web services has become popular among web developers as a simple, lightweight alternative to the cumbersome SOAP stack. This book is among the first to show Java developers how to build RESTful services, using the JAX-RS API included in the new Java enterprise platform (J2EE 6). Thorough and complete with lots of examples and best practices, RESTful Java with JAX-RS demonstrates how to build RESTful web applications with Java that are elegant, easy to use, and easy to understand.
This is the most authoritative book you'll find on the subject. Author Bill Burke is a member of the JAX-RS expert group, which wrote the specification, and leads the project for the JBoss/RedHat implementation of JAX-RS. If you develop web services using the JAX-WS API, and want to build services with REST, RESTful Java with JAX-RS is the book you need.
Most Java developers will soon have the tools for building web services with the REST technology — and this book will be the first to show them how it's done. The huge momentum REST has gained among web developers as a simple, "lightweight" method for building web services is finally affecting the Java world — the recently developed JAX-RS Java web services API will be part of the Java enterprise platform (J2EE 6) due out in May 2009. This book is the definite guide for developers who want to develop RESTful web services with Java, complete with examples and best practices.
