JAX-RS @Path annotation with regular expression match example


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

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.

Look at the below class to apply @Path annotation with regular expression 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("/employee")
public class EmployeeService {

	@GET
	@Path("{empId: [0-9]+}")
	public Response getEmployeeById(@PathParam("empId") String empId){
		
		return Response.status(200).entity("Got employee with id : " + empId).build();
	}
	
	@GET
	@Path("/name/{empName: [a-zA-Z\\s]+}")
	public Response getEmployeeByName(@PathParam("empName") String name){
		
		return Response.status(200).entity("Got employee with name : " + name).build();
	}
}

In the above example, if you use "/employee/123" URI pattern, getEmployeeById() method will be invoked, and you will get "Got employee with id : 123" as a response.

If you use "/employee/name/javanovice" URI pattern, then getEmployeeByName() method will be invoked and you will get "Got employee with name : javanovice" as a response.

In the next page you will see an example on how to use @PathParam annotation.
