Geared for experienced Java developers, Java REST Essentials is a two day, lab-intensive services training course that introduces developers to the core concepts, principles, and Java implementations for RESTful services. Today's development environments are increasingly dominated by sophisticated tooling that makes the implementation of RESTful services less arduous. The proper design of these services is far more complex and demanding. Java RESTful Service Essentials focuses on providing an understanding of the fundamental principles and technologies that are used in building these services. This understanding is critical to being able to diagnose, troubleshoot, tune, and perform other lifecycle activities.

Learning Objectives

This “skills-centric” course is about 50% hands-on lab and 50% lecture, designed to train attendees in core RESTful development skills, coupling the most current, effective techniques with the soundest industry practices.
