Overview

Summary

Restlet in Action gets you started with the Restlet Framework and the REST architecture style. You'll create and deploy applications in record time while learning to use popular RESTful Web APIs effectively. This book looks at the many aspects of web development, on both the server and client side, along with cloud computing, mobile Android devices, and Semantic Web applications.

About the Technology

In a RESTful architecture any component can act, if needed, as both client and server—this is flexible and powerful, but tricky to implement. The Restlet project is a reference implementation with a Java-based API and everything you need to build servers and web clients that integrate with most web and enterprise technologies.

About the Book

Restlet in Action introduces the Restlet Framework and RESTful web APIs. You'll see how to easily create and deploy your own web API while learning to consume other web APIs effectively. You'll learn about designing, securing, versioning, documentation, optimizing, and more on both the server and client side, as well as about cloud computing, mobile Android devices, and Semantic Web applications.

The book requires a basic knowledge of Java and the web, but no prior exposure to REST or Restlet.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.
