Everybody is doing REST -- at least everybody claims they are. But mostly web APIs are built without Hypermedia, what would allow the client to follow related resources and autonomously navigate through the API without prior implicit logic of the application. This sessions shows the concept and benefits of a Hypermedia driven REST API and how to implement this using JavaEE 7 with JAX-RS.
In this session I will give a short introduction for RESTful web services with Hypermedia as the engine of application state, what the benefits and costs of using this approach are and show different approaches how to realize such REST services with JavaEE 7 and JAX-RS. Most of the time will be spend demonstrating different implementations (plain JavaEE 7, existing libraries, etc.) with live coding.
