Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3005) Convert the monitor into a real REST server
Date Wed, 03 Dec 2014 02:15:12 GMT


Dave Marion commented on ACCUMULO-3005:

I've only used Jackson for JSON support. Not sure if is supports XML. On my project, we return
JAX-B objects from all of our JAX-RS endpoints. We have providers for XML, JSON, HTML, and
even Protobuf (via protostuff) mapped to different MediaTypes. The HTTP request will/should
have an Accept header and the JAX-RS engine will match the provider with the MediaType, and
use that Provider to serialize the object. We also put our JAX-B objects in a separate Client
jar for those users that only want to use XML, JSON, etc as the transport serialization and
then deserialize back to POJOs.

> The monitor works well for what it does, but it's very much so cobbled together. HTML
is hand generated. Static state is used liberally which makes testing near impossible. View
and controller logic are tightly intertwined which also adds to the testability problem.
> I've been working on porting the functionality from the existing monitor to a proper
rest service using [dropwizard|]. It's not completely
functional yet, but it has a number of improvements of the existing monitor code.
> I thought I would post what I have already and let people give some feedback if they're
interested. Help is always welcome.
