How to read header parameters in JAX-RS restful web services?


In this page you can see an example to query http header info using @Context annotation and HttpHeaders.

In the previous examples we have given details of application setup, dependencies, web.xml file configurations: If you want to know about these configuration, please refer these:

Restful web services using RESTEasy hello world example.
Restful web services using Jersey hello world example.

package com.java2novice.restful;

import java.util.Set;

import javax.ws.rs.GET;
import javax.ws.rs.Path;
import javax.ws.rs.core.Context;
import javax.ws.rs.core.HttpHeaders;
import javax.ws.rs.core.Response;

@Path("/http-header")
public class HttpHeaderService {

	@GET
	@Path("query")
	public Response queryHeaderInfo(@Context HttpHeaders httpHeaders){
		
		/** how to get specific header info? **/
		String cacheControl = httpHeaders.getRequestHeader("Cache-Control").get(0);
		System.out.println("Cache-Control: "+cacheControl);
		/** get list of all header parameters from request **/
		Set<String> headerKeys = httpHeaders.getRequestHeaders().keySet();
		for(String header:headerKeys){
			System.out.println(header+":"+httpHeaders.getRequestHeader(header).get(0));
		}
		return Response.status(200).entity("successfully queried header info").build();
	} 
}

Test with "http://localhost:8080/RestfulWebServices/http-header/query" URL, here is the output:

Output:

Procedural Vs Object-oriented Programs
In procedural program, programming logic follows certain procedures and the instructions are executed one after another. In OOP program, unit of program is object, which is nothing but combination of data and code.

In procedural program, data is exposed to the whole program whereas in OOPs program, it is accessible with in the object and which in turn assures the security of the code.
