Para o 27º encontro do PT.JUG, vamos ter o prazer de contar com a presença do Sebastian Daschner, que nos vai demonstrar o que podemos estar a perder ao não usarmos Hypermedia nos nossos endpoints REST.

Abstract: Putting Hypermedia Back in REST with JAX-RS

Everybody is doing REST -- at least everybody claims they are. But mostly web APIs are built without Hypermedia, what would allow the client to follow related resources and autonomously navigate through the API without prior implicit logic of the application.

This sessions shows the concept and benefits of a Hypermedia driven REST API and how to implement this using JavaEE 7 with JAX-RS.
