JAX-RS @Path annotation example


This page gives you an example using JAX-RS @Path annotation, how to bind a URI pattern to your java method.

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 Jersey hello world example.

Simple URI matching:

Look at the below class to apply @Path annotation to your method:

package com.java2novice.restful;

import javax.ws.rs.GET;
import javax.ws.rs.Path;
import javax.ws.rs.PathParam;
import javax.ws.rs.core.Response;

@Path("/message")
public class MessageReceiveService {

	@GET
	public Response pingMe(){
	
		String defaultResp = "Hi... How are you?";
		return Response.status(200).entity(defaultResp).build();
	}
	
	@GET
	@Path("/birthday")
	public Response printBdayMessage(){
		
		String bDayMessage = "Happy Birthday";
		return Response.status(200).entity(bDayMessage).build();
	}
}

In the above example, if you use "/message" URI pattern, pingMe() method will be invoked, and you will get "i... How are you?" as a response.

If you use "/message/birthday" URI pattern, then printBdayMessage() method will be invoked and you will get "Happy Birthday" as a response.

Dynamic URI with parameter matching:

In your @Path annotation URI value, anything between "{" and "}" braces can be dynamic. This value can be mapped to method input variable using @PathParam annotation. Look at below example:

package com.java2novice.restful;

import javax.ws.rs.GET;
import javax.ws.rs.Path;
import javax.ws.rs.PathParam;
import javax.ws.rs.core.Response;

@Path("/message")
public class MessageReceiveService {

	@GET
	@Path("{custMessage}")
	public Response printCustomMessage(@PathParam("custMessage") String message){
		
		return Response.status(200).entity(message).build();
	}
}

In the above example, if you use "/message/java2novice" as an URI, then you will get response as "java2novice". If you use "/message/do-u-like-it" as an URI, then you will get response as "do-u-like-it".

In the next page you will see an example on how to use @Path annotation with regular expression matching.

Difference between Enumeration and Iterator
The functionality of Enumeration and the Iterator are same. You can get remove() from Iterator to remove an element, while while Enumeration does not have remove() method. Using Enumeration you can only traverse and fetch the objects, where as using Iterator we can also add and remove the objects. So Iterator can be useful if you want to manipulate the list and Enumeration is for read-only access.
