Chapter 8. RESTful Services JAX-RS 2.0

Roy T. Fielding, Creator of REST Style Architecture said "When I say hypertext, I mean the simultaneous presentation of information and controls such that the information becomes the affordance through which the user (or automation) obtains choices and selects actions."

This chapter covers the Java API for RESTful services otherwise abbreviated to JAX-RS. It was the year, 2000, when Roy Fielding published his PhD thesis entitled Representational State Transfer: an Architecture Style. Since its publication over the past decade there has been a rapid growth of interest, applications, and implementations of REST style interfaces and application.
