Java SE 8: Creating a Basic REST Web Service using Grizzly, Jersey, and Maven

Duke Waving

My latest Java tutorial is now up on Oracle.com. This tutorial covers how to make a basic REST application using Grizzly, Jersey, and Maven. If you are new to any if these tools, this tutorial is a great way to try them out. You can launch the tutorial from here:

Java SE 8: Creating a Basic REST Web Service using Grizzly, Jersey, and Maven

In the tutorial you create an application using the open source Grizzly web server and the Apache Jersey library to create a RESTful web service. The Jersey library is the reference implementation of the JAX-RS Java REST web service API. Jersey makes creating RESTful web services really easy and the tutorial takes you through the process step by step.

Finally, Apache Maven is a Java build tool that makes it really easy to create and manage projects. It also allows you to create new projects using well known tools and templates and automates the process of downloading required libraries. Finally, you use Maven to create create an uber jar file which stores all the required libraries for an application in a single file.
