Book Description

REST is an architectural style that tackles the challenges of building scalable web services. In today’s connected world, APIs have taken a central role on the web. APIs provide the fabric through which systems interact, and REST has become synonymous with APIs.

The depth, breadth, and ease of use of Spring makes it one of the most attractive frameworks in the Java ecosystem. Marrying the two technologies is therefore a very natural choice.

This book takes you through the design of RESTful web services and leverages the Spring Framework to implement these services. Starting from the basics of the philosophy behind REST, you’ll go through the steps of designing and implementing an enterprise-grade RESTful web service. Taking a practical approach, each chapter provides code samples that you can apply to your own circumstances.

This book goes beyond the use of Spring and explores approaches to tackle resilience, security, and scalability concerns. You’ll learn techniques to deal with security in Spring and discover how to implement unit and integration test strategies.

Finally, the book ends by walking you through building a Java client for your RESTful web service, along with some scaling techniques for it.

What You Will Learn

  • Deep dive into the principles behind REST
  • Expose CRUD operations through RESTful endpoints with the Spring Framework
  • Devise response formats and error handling strategies, offering a consistent and flexible structure to simplify integration for service consumers
  • Follow the best approaches for dealing with a service’s evolution while maintaining backward compatibility
  • Understand techniques to secure web services
  • Comply with the best ways to test RESTful web services, including tips for load testing
  • Optimise and scale web services using techniques such as caching and clustering
