Advanced Java API for RESTful Web Services (JAX-RS)
In addition to its basic functionality for mapping HTTP requests to Java methods, the Java API for RESTful Web Services (JAX-RS) includes a wealth of additional features to make the RESTful Web Service developers life easier and more productive. This session will delve into lesser-known parts of the JAX-RS API, illustrating its use with a set of worked examples.
This session is intended for developers who already have a basic understanding of JAX-RS and want to take their skills to the next level. This session will cover:
Runtime resource resolution
Pluggable exception handling
Runtime content negotiation
Conditional HTTP requests
Dealing with type erasure
