I have been tasked with doing some JAX-RS coding during my day job. I wanted to update my skills for JAX-RS which is one of my favorite technologies. I specifically use Jersey
which I find very well done and easy to use. As a number of you may know... I am a GlassFish
fan too (one just needs to look at my banner). I decided to use my trusty NetBeans
8.2 install to write a quick example.MOXy
is enabled by default if you add the dependency to your Maven project.
This is a great feature, and I wanted to give it a spin instead of using Jackson
, or Jettison
. The usage was as simple as adding a
annotation to the model class. The rest was handled automagically.
The entire project including a war file are available on Github: jaxrs-form-data-parameters
A simple platform independent file is used to setup the application.
We set up web resource (service) to handle our requests.
That's it! You now have a JAX-RS Web Service. The project runs successfully on GlassFish 5.0 (.war file on GitHub). NOTE:
MOXy has some issues running on GlassFish 4.1, 4.1.1, and 4.2.
