JAX-RS is a specification for RESTful Web Services with Java. There is a reference implementation that is included in Java EE but since it is a specification, other frameworks can be written to implement the spec, and that includes Jersey, Resteasy, and others. Both Restlet and Jersey are two of the most popular implementation of JAX-RS used for developing RESTful web services in Java ecosystem but there are a couple of other implementation also exist e. g. Apache Wink, Apache CXF, and JBoss RESTEasy. JAX-RS is an specification (just a definition) and Jersey is a JAX-RS implementation. Jersey framework is more than the JAX-RS Reference Implementation. Jersey provides its own API that extend the JAX-RS toolkit with additional features and utilities to further simplify RESTful service and client development. JAX-RS stands for JAVA API for RESTful Web Services. JAX-RS is a JAVA based programming language API and specification to provide support for created RESTful Web Services. The RESTCONF Protocol REST (seen also as ReST) stands for Representational State Transfer. This type of protocol relies on a stateless client-server communications protocol. In reality this usually means the HTTP protocol is used.

RESTEasy is a JBoss / Red Hat project that provides various frameworks to help you build RESTful Web Services and RESTful Java applications. Moreover, RESTEasy also implements the MicroProfile REST Client specification API.

Both Jersey and RESTEasy provide their own implementation. The difference is that Jersey additionally provides something called Chunked Output. It allows the server to send back to the client a response in parts (chunks).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Representational_state_transfer

Representational state transfer (REST) is a software architectural style that defines a set of constraints to be used for creating Web services. Web services that conform to the REST architectural style, called RESTful Web services, provide interoperability between computer systems on the Internet.

The Spring Framework is a full framework that allows you to create Java enterprise applications. The REST capabilities are provided by the Spring MVC module (same module that provides model-view-controller capabilities). It is not a JAX-RS implementation and can be seen as a Spring alternative to the JAX-RS stardard.

RESTful service development (on Jersey) is an architecture, which inherently uses servlets. JAX-RS compliant tools like Jersey provide easy marshalling-unmarshalling of XML/JSON data, helping the developers. REST helps us use GET/POST/PUT/DELETE in a fashion that is far efficient than normal servlets.

Welcome to Restful Web Services Tutorial in Java. REST is the acronym for REpresentational State Transfer. REST is an architectural style for developing applications that can be accessed over the network. REST architectural style was brought in light by Roy Fielding in his doctoral thesis in 2000.

Jersey RESTful Web Services framework is open source, production quality, framework for developing RESTful Web Services in Java that provides support for JAX-RS APIs and serves as a JAX-RS (JSR 311 & JSR 339) Reference Implementation.

Restlet is a lightweight, comprehensive, open source REST framework for the Java platform. Restlet is suitable for both server and client Web applications. It supports major Internet transport, data format, and service description standards like HTTP and HTTPS, SMTP, XML, JSON, Atom, and WADL.

JAX-WS. 1 is a Web Services framework that provides tools and infrastructure to develop Web Services solutions for the end users and middleware developers. With JAX-WS RI 2. 3. 1, clients and web services have a big advantage: the platform independence of the Java programming language.

Java application programming interface (API) is a list of all classes that are part of the Java development kit (JDK). It includes all Java packages, classes, and interfaces, along with their methods, fields, and constructors. These prewritten classes provide a tremendous amount of functionality to a programmer.

JAX-WS, a Java API for the XML-Based Web Services, provided a standard way to develop a Web Services in SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) notation. JAX-RS is a Java API for RESTful Web Services. RESTful Web Services are represented as resources and can be identified by Uniform Resource Identifiers (URI).

Spring Boot Rest API Example. Writing RESTful services in Spring Boot is no-different than Spring MVC. If you are a REST Client [Rest Consumer], Spring Boot provides RestTemplateBuilder that can be used to customize the RestTemplate before calling the REST endpoints.

What is Restful Web Service? REST is used to build Web services that are lightweight, maintainable, and scalable in nature. A service which is built on the REST architecture is called a RESTful service. The underlying protocol for REST is HTTP, which is the basic web protocol.
