Chapter 9. Building a REST Client

Having focused on the server side of RESTful web services so far, let's turn the tables and look at how we can build a client for our sample property management system with Spring. In this chapter, we will discuss the following topics:

  • The basic setup for building a RESTful service client with Spring

  • Invoking service endpoints

  • Remote versus local clients

  • Handling security

  • Exception handling

Spring offers useful tools to quickly and efficiently build clients, as we will see throughout this chapter.
