How to pass a JSON string to a POST method to populate a mysql db ?

Hello I am trying to create a Web service that will have a JSON string passed which will then be used to populate a mysql db using POST method. So the CURL command could be something like this :

curl -X POST -H'Content-Type:application/json'-d{"Name:Jack","LastName":"Rooney"}'http://localhost:8080/SampleWS/Name

Can you kindly point me to a starting point ? I am very new to REST WS. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Regards,
Jack

Hi Jack,

first you need to decide on the framework you want to use for Jax-RS, there are various options like apache-cxf,Restlet,Jersey,Apache Wink,RESTeasy etc.

Once you choose the framework just follow the getting started tutorial for the same, you have very simple use case so you should be up and running soon.

Cheers

Neither of those is a RESTful framework. Are you planning on rolling your own?
