Target audience:

Users of the extension providing JAX-RS support for Web Services.

Summary: This document provides basic information about the extension providing JAX-RS support for Web Services.


This extension provides support for JAX-RS.

In what situation should you install this extension?

The main purpose of this extension is to create HTTP API entry points, to enable linking from a Web App front end. Therefore if your Web application contains source code which uses JAX-RS (1.0 (JSR 311) and 2.0 (JSR 339)) and you want to view these object types and their links with other objects, then you should install this extension. 


This extension handles JAX-RS Web Services used in J2EE applications, for example:

public class PrintersResource {
     @Produces({"application/json", "application/xml"})
     public WebResourceList getMyResources() { ... }
     @GET @Path("/list")
     @Produces({"application/json", "application/xml"})
     public WebResourceList getListOfPrinters() { ... }
     @PUT @Path("/ids/{printerid}")
     @Consumes({"application/json", "application/xml"})
     public void putPrinter(@PathParam("printerid") String printerId,  Printer printer) { ... }
     @DELETE @Path("/ids/{printerid}")
     public void deletePrinter(@PathParam("printerid") String printerId) { ... }

For each class annotated with javax.ws.rs.Path (@Path):
