The three day Java Web Services course provides a thorough guide to the design and implementation of RESTful web services using Java. We take students from the fundamental concepts of the REST architectural style and its embodiment in existing web standards, all the way through the creation and testing of a REST service. The course also illustrates how the decades-old HTTP protocol can in fact elegantly address a variety of "enterprise scale" issues, including high concurrency and atomic transactions.
Outline 1. Concepts: REST vs. the Rest The Richardson Maturity Model Resources: identification, representations and manipulation Hypermedia as engine of application state 2. HTTP Basics "CRUD" mapped to verbs / methods Introduction to HTTP Headers A glance at Webmachine's "Big HTTP Graph" 3. Intro to JAX-RS and Jersey Creating resource classes Jersey annotations: HTTP methods and headers Constructing responses: headers and bodies Standalone deployment with SimpleServerFactory Testing fundamentals: JUnit and Jersey-Client 4. Resource Representations Standard internet media types JAXB: standard annotations and "content negotiation" for XML and JSON Jackson: a non-standard, JSON-optimized alternative More testing: Jackson object mapping and Hamcrest pattern matching 5. Representation Recipes Building links to related resources, and URI templates for families of resources Aggregate representations Combating representation bloat: summaries, expansions and pagination 6. "Enterprise" HTTP Authentication Optimizations: conditional requests (using modification dates and entity tags) and caching Transactions: ephemeral resources When does a GET have to be a POST?
