Hypermedia REST services with Java EE

Java Arkitektur & Design

Everybody is doing REST -- at least everybody claims they are. But mostly web APIs are built without Hypermedia, what would allow the client to follow related resources and autonomously navigate through the API without prior implicit logic of the application. JAX-RS offers an easy integration of REST services into Java EE applications.

This training shows the concept and benefits of a Hypermedia driven REST API and how to implement this using JavaEE 7 with JAX-RS. Following topics will be covered:

  • Motivation behind using REST services with Hypermedia as the Engine of Application State
  • Showing several approaches and Hypermedia content types
  • JAX-RS and Java EE 7 features that simplify the implementation of Hypermedia
  • Collective coding of a complex Hypermedia REST API with Java EE 7

Basic Java knowledge, basic Java EE knowledge.

Who should attend:
Java (EE) developers and architects, Anyone who designs web services / enterprise interfaces.

Computer setup:
JDK 1.8, Maven 3, IDE of choice.
