Hi

I am currently learning REST API from java web service certification perspective.
I would like to limit my study to the scope of Java certification.

Is REST Core API (implemented in form of Jersey) is sufficient for the exam ?
Is RestEasy framework (or any other framework) is in scope of exam?
What are the different type of Rest API is in scope of exam?

Thanks
Abhay

Hi Abhay,

The Server API is defined in JAX-RS v1.1 spec. (and read the Jersey User Guide v1.17, chapter 1-5)

A Client API is not defined in the JAX-RS v1.1 specs. However you are supposed to know and study the following clients:
1) URLConnection Client (source: API)
2) HttpURLConnection Client (source: API)
3) Jersey Client (Jersey User Guide v1.17, chapter 1-5 should be sufficient)

RestEasy is not in scope

Jersey 1.7 is the one to go for as it is based on JAX-RS v1.1 (which is the basis for the WSD-6 exam). Jersey 2.5 is based on JAX-RS v2.0 (and has many more features not needed for the exam)
