|[rest-dev] Jakarta Rest Workshop|
My name is Ken Fogel and I have likely met some of you at JavaOne/CodeOne. I am writing to this list as I have been asked to prepare a workshop based on the Jakarta 10 REST and JSON-B frameworks/libraries. I am a retired Computer Science instructor at Dawson College in Montreal, a Java Champion and member of the executive committee of the JCP. Like all retired academics, or at least some of us, I have written a book on Java that just came out and my next project is the workshop.
I taught a course on Web Services as recently as 2015 but at that time I used JEE 7. Almost half the course was focused on XML, XLST, SOAP, etc.. Obviously, XML is off the table and will be replaced by JSON. I also used Docker so that my students could create multiple servers on a single machine, as security at Concordia restricted inter machine communication. For your amusement here are course topics from 2015.:
1 Overview of JEE 7 Web Services
2 XML Basics
3 DTD and Schema
4 Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations
5 The Java APIs for XML Processing
• SAX 2 - Simple API for XML
• DOM 2 - Document Object Model
• StAX – Streaming API for XML
6 JAX -WS
I see the workshop outline as:
Overview of Jakarta 10 Web Services
Implementing Jakarta RESTful Web Services
This is a simplified list. My intention is to develop a series of exercises interspaced with brief technical presentations. For some if not all exercises I plan to provide a maven based initial project framework. These workshops will be packaged for use by presenters other than myself for JUGs, conferences, and classroom sessions. There will be a one-hour and a three-hour version.
Here is where I can use your help. The audience for this workshop is someone who wishes to upgrade their REST skills to Jakarta 10. Back in the JEE 7 days I relied on the IDE’s ability to generate supporting classes. Having played with SeBootstrap I am excited to see that what was once necessary to generate in the IDE is no longer necessary. My question is “What do you think should be in this workshop?”.
We can discuss this here on the mailing list or you can reach me at kfogel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. I look forward to your suggestions and comments. My goal is to have the first draft ready by the end of the month and I hope that some of you will have some time to look it over.
Be well and be safe,
