Chapter 3 walked you through a very basic example of creating a JAX-RS service and a JAX-RS client that invokes on it. This service was a simple in-memory customer database. It was modeled as a singleton JAX-RS resource class and exchanged simple XML documents.
This chapter takes the code from Chapter 3 and shows you how to run it using the downloadable workbook example code. I’ll walk you through how the code is structured on disk as well as how the examples use the Maven build system to compile, build, and run it.
