Course description

Just like any modern framework running on a Java application server, JAX-RS defines a lifecycle for the resources that you create. In this course, you will learn about the JAX-RS lifecycles of Instance per request, as well as how singletons behave. Along with those topics we will also explore all of the elements that can be injected into a service to provide access to all the different parts of the HTTP request and response. Lastly, we will look at the power of sub resources.


This course assumes that the users have experience coding with Java. You should have already viewed the “RESTful Services: Overview and JAX-RS” course before viewing this course.
