REST 0.5 is out

As you may know, the version 0.5 RESTful Web Services plugin for NetBeans IDE has been available since 18 January. I've already updated the snippets in relevant tutorials. The most visible changes in the API are:
  • Replacement of the @UriTemplate annotation with the simpler @Path.
  • The @HttpMethod annotation has become a meta-annotation, with the following changes:
    • @HttpMethod("GET")-->@GET
    • @HttpMethod("POST")-->@POST
    • @HttpMethod("PUT")-->@PUT
The deployment and complilation processes have also been simplified. For more details, see Paul Sandoz's blog. Releases of Jersey and the NetBeans REST plugin are related to the JAX-RS release schedule. The Jersey release schedule is available here.

New Tutorial Exposing MySQL DB

There's a new web services tutorial up, based on a demo posted on Arun Gupta's excellent blog. This tutorial shows you how to set up NetBeans IDE to access a MySQL database and then expose database fields as RESTful web services, via entity classes. The tutorial is called Consuming a MySQL Database in a RESTful Web Service. It makes a good follow-on to Connecting to a MySQL Database and Getting Started with RESTful Web Services on GlassFish.

New REST on Tomcat tutorial

Good news for those of you who have struggled trying to deploy the Getting Started with RESTful Web Services tutorial on the bundled Tomcat AS. No more digging about on netbeans wiki. I've combined the configuration instructions on the wiki with the existing tutorial, and created the new Getting Started with RESTful Web Services on Tomcat tutorial. The original tutorial is now titled Getting Started with RESTful Web Services on GlassFish.

We've been having some trouble building the new tutorial's project on linux boxes. These problems are related to known issues about library definitions on linux (Issues 126339 and 115947 for those of you in the NetBeans IDE community). If you have a linux box and use this tutorial, please let us know how it went.

For that matter, any and all feedback would be welcome!
