JAX-RS Server API Snippets

Sunday, September 28th, 2014

Because a lot of my current projects are using JAX-RS in different versions I’d like to write down and share some frequently used snippets for implementing RESTful web-services with the JAX-RS specification here.

Java EE 7 Database Migrations with Liquibase and WildFly

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

I have written about other database migration frameworks before but in this article I’d like to cover the Liquibase framework in combination with WildFly as Java EE 7 compatible application server.

In the following tutorial, we’re going to write a full Java EE 7 book store application with a few steps and with Liquibase on board to create the database structure and insert example data into the database.

Thanks to the WildFly Maven Plug-in we even do not need to download and configure the application server but let Maven and the plug-in do the work for us.

Java EE: Logging User Interaction the Aspect-Oriented Way using Interceptors

Monday, May 26th, 2014

Using dependency injection and aspect-oriented mechanisms like interceptors allow us to separate cross-cutting-concerns in our Java enterprise application, to control global aspects of our application and to avoid boilerplate code.

In the following short tutorial we’re going to create an aspect-oriented logger to protocol the initiating user, class and method called and the parameters passed to the method and finally we’re adding this interceptor to a sample RESTful web-service by adding a simple annotation.

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.

REST-assured vs Jersey-Test-Framework: Testing your RESTful Web-Services

Monday, September 5th, 2011

Today we’re going to take a look at two specific frameworks that enables you to efficiently test your REST-ful services: On the one side there is the framework REST-assured that offers a nice DSL-like syntax to create well readable tests – on the other side there is the Jersey-Test-Framework that offers a nice execution environment and is built upon the JAX-RS reference implementation, Jersey.

In the following tutorial we’re going to create a simple REST service first and then implement integration tests for this service using both frameworks.

The title of this article might be misleading due to the fact that I am not going to compare both frameworks to choose a winner, just showing the different approach ..

Creating a REST Client Step-by-Step using JAX-RS, JAX-B and Jersey

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

Often in a developer’s life there is a REST service to deal with and nowadays one wants a fast and clean solution to create a client for such a service.

The following tutorial shows a quick approach using JAX-RS with its reference implementation, Jersey in combination with JAX-B for annotation driven marshalling between XML or JSON structures and our Java-Beans.
