Quick introduction to REST and JAX-RS
Here are some slides introducing to REST world. Examples are using JAX-RS (JSR 311).
If we’re moving to the cloud-era, the undestanding of this architecture style is essential. In the cloud we are presented with services (Storage, Search, Graph, Geolocation, …) that we can and should use to build applications. Almost all of these services, available in the cloud, provide some kind of interface and happens that, this interfaces is, generally, a RESTful Web Service. If I want collaborate with these services I must talk the same language!! Moreover, exploring this architectural style in new applications opens the door for realy distributed and scalable systems, while the simplicity is kept high!
