Caching REST Resources In Jakarta REST (formerly JAX-RS)

REST, or Representational State Transfer, is the web standard for building APIs and applications. It offers a lightweight architecture for exchanging data between applications over the web. Jakarta REST (formerly JAX-RS) is the standard API for building RESTful web services on the Jakarta EE Platform. 

This blog post looks at caching within Jakarta REST. We'll explore how to use the built-in features and functionalities to enhance the performance and user experience of your RESTful APIs through resource caching. By using these techniques, you can significantly reduce server load, improve responsiveness, and enhance the overall efficiency of your web resources.

Expressive REST Resources with Java Records and Jakarta REST

Modern web applications often adopt a layered architecture to separate concerns and improve maintainability. In this paradigm, your REST API acts as a communication layer, exposing resources to clients while interacting with the deeper layers of your application. Leveraging Java Records as Data Transfer Objects (DTOs) in this context helps to simplify the design of your REST resources, making them more expressive and easier to work with.
