Learn how to make a web service with the RESTEasy framework. In this tutorial we will use Netbeans 7 as the IDE, and we will use tools as Maven and Tomcat 7, to build the application and to deploy and test it.
This tutorial is for beginners who already can program in Java, but don’t know how to make a Web Service. The toturial will strictly show how to make a Web Service which can produce XML and JSON via simple user GET requests. The Web Service won’t use a database in part 1, but in the second video, the web service talks to a MySQL database, through the hibernate ORM framework. We will have a simple Person table with som test data, instead of our currently simulated database inside the web service.
