RESTful Service Example

In this example we will create a bare bones standards based RESTful service using EclipseLink JPA & JAXB.

  • Database Model - This is the database model that we will expose as a REST service.
  • Entity Model - We will interact with our database using JPA entities.
  • XML Binding - JAXB/MOXy will be used to apply an XML representation to our JPA entities.
  • RESTful Service - An EJB session bean will be used to implment the JAX-RS service.
  • RESTful Client - We will create a client to interact with our RESTful service.
