Creating REST Clients for JAX-RS based Webservices with Netflix Feign

Thursday, October 22nd, 2015

For us developers there plenty of libraries exist helping us in deriving and generating clients for existing RESTful web-services and I have already covered some of the in this blog (e.g. the JAX-RS Client API). Nevertheless, I’d like to share my experience with another interesting lightweight library here: Netflix Feign.

Feign offers a nice fluent-builder API, a rich integration forĀ  common libraries and APIs like JAX-RS, Jackson, GSON, SAX, JAX-B, OkHttp, Ribbon, Hystrix, SLF4J and more and last bot not least, it is setup easy and the service contracts are specified using interfaces and annotations.

In the following tutorial I’d like to demonstrate how to derive a service binding from a simple, JAX-RS based RESTful web-service, how to create the service adapter using the integrated builder and at last, performing CRUD operations.

JAX-RS 2.0 REST Client Features by Example

Monday, December 30th, 2013

JAX-RS 2.0 aka JSR 339 not also specifies the API to build up a RESTful webservice but also enhances the client side API to easen up the process of writing a client for a REST service.

In the following tutorial we’re building up a client for a ready-to-play REST service and explore the different new options e.g. how to handle requests in a synchronous or asynchronous way, how to add callback handlers for a request, how to specify invocation targets to build up requests for a later execution or how to filter the client-server communication using client request filters and client response filters.
