Overview of this book

Imagine creating and testing Java EE applications on Apache Tomcat Server or Wildfly Application server in minutes along with deploying and managing Java applications swiftly. Sounds too good to be true? But you have a reason to cheer as such scenarios are only possible by leveraging Docker and Kubernetes. This book will start by introducing Docker and delve deep into its networking and persistent storage concepts. You will then proceed to learn how to refactor monolith application into separate services by building an application and then packaging it into Docker containers. Next, you will create an image containing Java Enterprise Application and later run it using Docker. Moving on, the book will focus on Kubernetes and its features and you will learn to deploy a Java application to Kubernetes using Maven and monitor a Java application in production. By the end of the book, you will get hands-on with some more advanced topics to further extend your knowledge about Docker and Kubernetes.

REST in Java

When developing a REST service in Java, we have at least a couple of options for the framework we could use. The most popular will be pure JEE7 with JAX-RS or Spring Framework with its Spring Boot. You can use either of them or mix them together. Let's look at those two now in more detail, starting with JAX-RS.

Java EE7 - JAX-RS with Jersey

JAX-RS was born as a result of Java Specification Request (JSR) 311. As the official definition says, the JAX-RS is the Java API for RESTful web services. It's a specification that provides support in creating web services according to the REST architectural pattern. JAX-RS uses Java annotations, introduced in Java SE 5, to simplify the development and deployment...
