This course walks the student through general web service concepts, then focuses on RESTful web services. We will write both a service and clients, process JSON and XML, and test using cURL.

This course covers the following topics:

  • Web Service Concepts

  • JAX-RS

  • Calling a Web Service

  • Writing a Web Service

  • Processing XML/JSON

  • Using the xjc Schema Compiler

  • Using cURL

  • SSL

  • Authentication & Authorization

  • JavaFX to REST Example

  • Apache Tomcat and CXF

The application server initially used is GlassFish since GF is the reference implementation for Java EE.  Section 8 covers the above topics using Apache Tomcat and CXF as the application server.

The environment used for this course includes:

  • Java SE 8
  • Java EE 7
  • Eclipse IDE
  • GlassFish/Payara Server
  • Apache Tomcat
