In the first blog entry of this series, we showed how to configure a message body reader (MBR) on an instance of Client. Specifically, our example required the registration of an MBR to convert an application/json representation of the Money bean.
Client client = ClientFactory.newClient();client.configuration().register(MoneyMBR.class);
As stated in that blog entry, a Client instance can be...

This is a follow-up to last week's blog in which we introduced the new Client API in JAX-RS 2.0. In that blog, we defined a simple AtmService and showed how to use the Client API to access its resources. For example, the following code was used to check an account's balance:
Client client = ClientFactory.newClient();String bal = client.target("http://.../atm/balance") ...

The Early Draft for JAX-RS 2.0 (JSR 339) has recently been submitted for publication. There are number of interested features in the new draft, and I'd like to start with the new Client API. The Client API is used to access Web resources. It provides a higher-level API than HttpURLConnection, and perhaps more importantly, integration with JAX-RS providers.
Let us start by defining a simple ATM...

In my last blog entry, I described VideoSharing which is an application that uses Web sockets to remote UI events and enable participants to control HTML5 video players remotely. Today, I'd like to share with you a similar type of collaboration application, but this time one that uses other HTML5 features: namely, 2D canvases and client SQL databases. The name of this application is...

It's been several months since my last blog! I have recently re-joined the Glassfish team at Oracle and I'm currently looking at Web tier technologies like Web sockets and HTML5. In this blog, I'd like to show you a simple Web application in which you can control an HTML5 video object remotely. The basic idea is to intercept video events like 'play', 'pause' and 'seeked' and remote them using Web...

During the last few weeks, Marc H., Paul S. and myself have been exploring some ideas to support Hypermedia in Jersey. The outcome of this investigation is an experimental implementation that is available in Jersey's trunk (module version 1.2-SNAPSHOT). Exactly what it means to support hypermedia is still an area of research, and some other implementations of JAX-RS (notably RESTfulie) have also...

The Sun Mobility Platform Telematics demo, co-developed by Oracle and Sun, was showcased at Oracle Open World this week. It was shown as part of a presentation on Monday and at the Berkeley DB (BDB) booth for the rest of the week. The demo shows a simulation of vehicles synchronizing events collected on a local database (BDB) to a back-end Oracle database. Events collected from vehicle sensors...

As Ryan described in his recent blog, we now have support for Java SE clients in the Mobility Platform. Mahesh Sharma, a student and Sun ambassador in India, has been working on a port of this library to the Android platform. As part of his work, Mahesh also re-wrote the UI of our MusicDb demo and proved that Android is a great plaform to run SGMP applications.
With Mahesh's work we now have full...

The Mobility Platform team has been working on a number of new features and enhancements since the release of GlassFish Mobility Platform v1.1 in February 2009. One of those features is the ability to run the Mobility Platform software on top of Glassfish ESB. There is a clear synergy between the Mobility Platform and Glassfish ESB. The former is about mobilizing the enterprise, while the latter...
