Chapter 20
Building RESTful Web Services with JAX-RS

This chapter describes the REST architecture, RESTful web services, and the Java API for RESTful Web Services (JAX-RS, defined in JSR 311).

Jersey, the reference implementation of JAX-RS, implements support for the annotations defined in JSR 311, making it easy for developers to build RESTful web services by using the Java programming language.

If you are developing with GlassFish Server, you can install the Jersey samples and documentation by using the Update Tool. Instructions for using the Update Tool can be found in Java EE 6 Tutorial Component. The Jersey samples and documentation are provided in the Available Add-ons area of the Update Tool.

The following topics are addressed here:
