Build a RESTful Web service using Jersey and Tomcat

15 October 2009

Unfortunately, I have been WWWAAAYYY too busy to even think about doing any blogging lately, but I have been having a lot of fun trying to figure out how to make this work with Spring 3.0.0RC1:

Summary: Representational state transfer (REST) was introduced in early 2000 by Roy Fielding’s doctoral dissertation. However, in the Java™ community, it was not standardized until the JSR 311(JAX-RS) specification was finalized in 2008. The first release of its reference implementation is even later. In this article, I introduce Jersey, which is the reference implementation of JSR 311, by describing its essential APIs and annotations. I’ll also show you how you can smoothly transfer from servlet-style services to RESTful services by integrating Jersey into Apache Tomcat.
