[STARTER] JAX-RS: Jersey + Servlet 3.0 + Maven + Tomcat

Steps to configure a JAX-RS project that runs on Tomcat (here 8), Maven, Servlet 3.0 and having Jersey as a Reference Implementation.

1. Maven POM.XML dependencies:


	<dependency>
            <groupId>javax.servlet</groupId>
            <artifactId>javax.servlet-api</artifactId>
            <version>3.0.1</version>
            <scope>provided</scope>
        </dependency>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.glassfish.jersey.core</groupId>
            <artifactId>jersey-server</artifactId>
            <version>2.10.1</version>
        </dependency>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.glassfish.jersey.core</groupId>
            <artifactId>jersey-common</artifactId>
            <version>2.10.1</version>
        </dependency>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.glassfish.jersey.containers</groupId>
            <artifactId>jersey-container-servlet</artifactId>
            <version>2.10.1</version>
        </dependency>

 

2. web.xml (src/main/webapp/WEB-INF)


<web-app version="3.0" xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee"
    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
</web-app>

 

3. Application class (under: src/main/java/com/vvirlan/java/ws

package com.vvirlan.java.ws;

import java.util.HashSet;
import java.util.Set;
import javax.ws.rs.ApplicationPath;
import javax.ws.rs.core.Application;

import com.vvirlan.java.ws.resources.Hello;

@ApplicationPath("/rest")
public class MyApplication extends Application {

	@Override
	public Set<Class<?>> getClasses() {
		final Set<Class<?>> returnValue = new HashSet<Class<?>>();
		returnValue.add(Hello.class);
		return returnValue;
	}
}

4. Resource class (which is the actual web service endpoint):

package com.vvirlan.java.ws.resources;

import javax.ws.rs.GET;
import javax.ws.rs.Path;
import javax.ws.rs.Produces;

import javax.ws.rs.core.MediaType;

@Path("hello")
public class Hello {

	@GET
	@Produces(MediaType.TEXT_PLAIN)
	public String getIt() {
		return "Got it!";
	}

        @GET
	@Path("user/{id}")
	@Produces(MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON)
	public User getMe(@PathParam("id") String id) {
		User toReturn = new User();
		toReturn.setName(id);
		toReturn.setEmail("Email");
		return toReturn;
	}

}

5. Build the app as usually and deploy to tomcat webapp folder
6. Point the browser:
http://localhost:8080/demo2/rest/hello

Notes:
A. Folder layout:

screen

B. Complete pom.xml
