REST is a technique for providing light weight Web Services and in Java EE the Java API for RESTful Services (JAX-RS) provides the service framework. The Java Persistence API (JPA) provides the data access and Java Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB) handles marshalling the persistent entities into and out of XML. Sound great! There are a number of issues developers have to deal with when using them together. In this session we'll look at how to build RESTful services with Eclipse WTP using these standard technologies, their integration points and where the pain points are, and how to avoid them using EclipseLink's advanced REST/JAXB/JPA integrations features.
