Web services for Java applications based on the REST technology provide a normalized and scalable means to set up client communication with external applications. This course demonstrates how to integrate RESTful applications with a relational database so that clients can interact with it and perform create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) operations on it. Learn how to link a MySQL database with a RESTful app. Set it up to respond to a GET request by looking up a table in your database. Advancing from read operations, establish add, update, and delete operations, defining methods that can respond to POST, PUT, and DELETE requests. By the end of the course, you'll be able to facilitate your clients to use your web service app to interact with a database.
