Restful web services using Jersey hello world example.


In this page we are giving simple hello world restful web service example using Jersey framework.

Here is the directory structure:

We need Jersey related jar files, here is the pom.xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" 
    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
	xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 
    			http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">
	<modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
	<groupId>RestfulWebServices</groupId>
	<artifactId>RestfulWebServices</artifactId>
	<version>0.0.1-SNAPSHOT</version>
	<packaging>war</packaging>
	<dependencies>
		<dependency>
			<groupId>com.sun.jersey</groupId>
			<artifactId>jersey-server</artifactId>
			<version>1.17</version>
		</dependency>
		<dependency>
			<groupId>com.sun.jersey</groupId>
			<artifactId>jersey-servlet</artifactId>
			<version>1.17</version>
		</dependency>
	</dependencies>
</project>

Simple service class with @Path annotations, you will get more details about these annotations going ahead in this site.

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("/publish")
public class RestEasyExample {

	@GET
	@Path("/{message}")
	public Response publishMessage(@PathParam("message") String msgStr){
		
		String responseStr = "Received message: "+msgStr;
		return Response.status(200).entity(responseStr).build();
	}
}

We need to configure Jersey within our web.xml file. In web.xml file, register "com.sun.jersey.spi.container.servlet.ServletContainer" and declare your services package path as shown below. Here is the web.xml file for your reference:

<web-app id="WebApp_ID" version="2.4"
	xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee" 
	xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
	xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee 
	http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee/web-app_2_4.xsd">
	    
    <servlet>
		<servlet-name>jersey-serlvet</servlet-name>
			<servlet-class>
                     com.sun.jersey.spi.container.servlet.ServletContainer
                </servlet-class>
		<init-param>
		     <param-name>jersey.config.server.provider.packages</param-name>
		     <param-value>com.java2novice.restful</param-value>
		</init-param>
		<load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup>
	</servlet>
  
    <servlet-mapping>
        <servlet-name>jersey-serlvet</servlet-name>
        <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
    </servlet-mapping>
</web-app>

Now create war file and deploy it either in tomcat or jboss. Run the server and open link http://localhost:8080/RestfulWebServices/publish/{user-input} in the browser. Here {user-input} value can be dynamic, this value will be received by the rest service and returns as a response:

Knowledge Centre
What is race condition?
A race condition is a situation in which two or more threads or processes are reading or writing some shared data, and the final result depends on the timing of how the threads are scheduled. Race conditions can lead to unpredictable results and subtle program bugs. A thread can prevent this from happening by locking an object. When an object is locked by one thread and another thread tries to call a synchronized method on the same object, the second thread will block until the object is unlocked.
Famous Quotations
The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance; it is the illusion of knowledge.
