  • Jerkey: A Kotlin DSL for Jersey

    I’m currently working on a DSLs-in-Kotlin presentation for my local JUG, so I need a good domain in which to work. HTML is a great sample domain, but it’s been done to death. After a bit of head scratching, I’ve come up with what is, I think, a somewhat novel domain: REST application building. Sure, there are libraries like Ktor, but suffers from some very serious NIH. I’m totally kidding, but the dearth of discussions regarding REST applications and DSL construction was good enough for me, so let’s see what we have so far.

  • A Jersey POJOMapping Client/Server Example

    JAX-RS is the specification that describes how to build RESTful interfaces in a Java EE environment. Jersey is the reference implementation of that spec, and, like many implementations, offers features above and beyond what spec does. One feature that I’ve been working with recently is the POJOMapping feature, which makes writing services and clients much easier, as well as typesafe.
