RESTful web service


Takto definuje RESTful Web Services samotny Oracle:

What Are RESTful Web Services?

RESTful web services are built to work best on the Web. Representational State Transfer (REST) is an architectural style that specifies constraints, such as the uniform interface, that if applied to a web service induce desirable properties, such as performance, scalability, and modifiability, that enable services to work best on the Web. In the REST architectural style, data and functionality are considered resources and are accessed using Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs), typically links on the Web. The resources are acted upon by using a set of simple, well-defined operations. The REST architectural style constrains an architecture to a client/server architecture and is designed to use a stateless communication protocol, typically HTTP. In the REST architecture style, clients and servers exchange representations of resources by using a standardized interface and protocol.

The following principles encourage RESTful applications to be simple, lightweight, and fast:

- Resource identification through URI: A RESTful web service exposes a set of resources that identify the targets of the interaction with its clients. Resources are identified by URIs, which provide a global addressing space for resource and service discovery. See The @Path Annotation and URI Path Templates for more information.

- Uniform interface: Resources are manipulated using a fixed set of four create, read, update, delete operations: PUT, GET, POST, and DELETE. PUT creates a new resource, which can be then deleted by using DELETE. GET retrieves the current state of a resource in some representation. POST transfers a new state onto a resource. See Responding to HTTP Methods and Requests for more information.

- Self-descriptive messages: Resources are decoupled from their representation so that their content can be accessed in a variety of formats, such as HTML, XML, plain text, PDF, JPEG, JSON, and others. Metadata about the resource is available and used, for example, to control caching, detect transmission errors, negotiate the appropriate representation format, and perform authentication or access control. See Responding to HTTP Methods and Requests and Using Entity Providers to Map HTTP Response and Request Entity Bodies for more information.

- Stateful interactions through hyperlinks: Every interaction with a resource is stateless; that is, request messages are self-contained. Stateful interactions are based on the concept of explicit state transfer. Several techniques exist to exchange state, such as URI rewriting, cookies, and hidden form fields. State can be embedded in response messages to point to valid future states of the interaction. See Using Entity Providers to Map HTTP Response and Request Entity Bodies and “Building URIs” in the JAX-RS Overview document for more information.

Implementace v jadre

Konfiguracn soubor config.ini obsahuje nasledujici radky (vyznam kazdeho radku by mel byt zrejmy) pro konfiguraci restoveho API


V metode Core.initializeCore() je definovana inicializace RESToveho API

if (configFileService.isRestAPI()) {"starting REST API");
  UndertowJaxrsServer ut = new UndertowJaxrsServer();
  try {
    ut.start(Undertow.builder().addHttpListener(configFileService.getRestApiPort(), configFileService.getRestApiIP()));
  } catch (RuntimeException e) {
    log.error("port " + configFileService.getRestApiPort()
        + " already in usage. REST api could not be initialized. Is another Marklar instance running? Is there any other application using port "
        + configFileService.getRestApiPort());
  ut.deploy(new RestApiModule(configurationInitializer));
  ut.start();"REST API started");
} else {"no REST API to be started");

Rozsireni v dane implementaci

vedle defaultnich metod restoveho API, ktere jsou definovany v tride CoreAPI je mozno kazdy Marklarovsky projekt o dalsi restove metody rozsirit. Jak se tak ucini je popsano zde.


V teto casti nasleduje prehled pouziti RESToveho API. Predpokladam, ze v souboru config.ini je nasledujici nastaveni


coz znamena, ze RESTove API je aktivovane a pristupne na http://localhost:9898/

Vypis komponent

Nez postoupite dale, je treba si rict, jak Marklar chape pojmy Instrument, Device, Component.

Instrument je pristroj, na kterem je mozno provadet jeden konkretni experiment. Instrument se sestava z jednoho ci vice Device, ktere predstavuje zarizeni, se kterym je mozno komunikovat - muze se jednat o controlelr teploty, kameru, nebo LabJack poskytujici logicke instrukce. Device definuje sve pripojeni a jednu nebo vice komponent definovanych adresou. Komponentou muze byt teplota v peci, zadana teplota, na kterou se ma pec vyhrat, stav rele a dalsi. Aby bylo mozno s Compnent komunikovat, prislusne Device musi byt pripojeno.

Pripojeni k zarizeni
