RESTful Java Patterns and Best Practices” written by ’Bhakti Mehta' has been recently published. One of the great thing about this book is that it is not a theoretical book covering the JAX-RS API 2.0. As its title suggest, this book is talking about different best practices that are relevant when it comes to build efficient, scalable and secure RESTful services. So the focus of the book is really on REST best practices. It then shows how you can apply the practices and patterns using the JAX-RS 2.0 APIs.
Some of the covered practices discussed are:
- How to design and expose your resources
- Error handling
- API versioning
- Asynchronous behaviours, etc.
To celebrate this, Packt Publishing will raffle 10 copies of “RESTful Java Patterns and Best Practices” (5 eBook copies and 5 paper copies).
