How to write Simple Java Clients for REST Services




Spider Web in the Dew

WSDL, the W3C standard language for describing
Web Services endpoints,
is very flexible but it is also complex, so Marc has been working on
>WADL as an alternative for REST WebServices.
Marc's latest blog describes how to
>Map WADL to Java.
The results are very interesting; for instance, this is the client code to access
Yahoo's News Service:



Endpoint.NewsSearch s = new Endpoint.NewsSearch();
ResultSet results = s.getAsResultSet("jaxws_restful_sample", "java");
for (ResultType result: results.getResult()) {
System.out.println(result.getTitle()+" ("+result.getClickUrl()+")");
}

Marc promises an implementation soon and is looking for interesting WADL samples
as well as general feedback.
