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:

Knowledge Centre
String Vs StringBuffer
We know that String is immutable object. We can not change the value of a String object once it is initiated. If we try to change the value of the existing String object then it creates new object rather than changing the value of the existing object. So incase, we are going to do more modificatios on String, then use StringBuffer. StringBuffer updates the existing objects value, rather creating new object.
