Learn to create Java API backend services REST/JSON for mobile/web, host on your own Linux server. Tomcat/MongoDB


This course offers comprehensive training in creating Java-based API backend services for mobile/web applications, emphasizing REST architecture with JSON payloads. Students learn to develop APIs using Java, Jersey 2.0, and Swagger, with MongoDB integration. Requirements include a computer with Java 1.7, Eclipse 4, and Maven 3. The course covers setting up Maven projects, documenting APIs with Swagger, and deploying them on Tomcat 7. Led by an experienced iOS Architect, the course provides insights into API endpoint types and full end-to-end solution creation. Content includes detailed tutorials, from project setup to production deployment, with access to the instructor’s GitHub account for additional resources. While focused on Mac OSX development, the principles are transferable to Java on other platforms. Geared towards mobile app developers needing custom backend services, the course equips students to develop APIs for startup companies. Whether deploying on a production server or local machine, the course ensures students grasp each step with practical examples and hands-on learning.


What You’ll Learn

  • Students will be able to create an Java based API end point.
  • Students will understand technology for API’s, REST, JSON and how to integrate into a Java server.
  • Students will understand how to create an API that connects with MongoDB



Students need access to an Computer with Java 1.7, Eclipse 4 and Maven 3 installed.


Course Description

Learn the basic concepts of API’s to include HTTP based REST with JSON payloads. Learn how to create a working system with Java using the Jersey 2.0 framework and Swagger to create API documentation. Learn how to create an API that connects to MongoDB. We walk thru creating some simple API’s and follow thru with deployment onto a Tomcat application server. This development is presented on a Mac OSX with Java 1.7 and deployed on a Linux server in a cloud environment.

Build a strong foundation in API development with Java. This course helps you understand and implement API’s using Java and Jersey technology for your own back end server with the latest technologies.

  • Java 1.7 programming language
  • Eclipse 4
  • Maven 3
  • Jersey 2.0
  • Swagger 2.0
  • Mac OSX 10.11
  • Linux
  • Tomcat 7
  • MongoDB

Professional skills and experience from an iOS Architect with over 8 years experience.

Learn the fundamentals but also tips and tricks of the experts. Learn about the different type of API end points and how to create a full end to end solution.

We will walk thru the project setup and all required elements to create a full end to end API server.

Content and Overview

This course explains key technology concepts of API’s with REST and JSON technology in a Java system. We show development from start to finish to include deployment on a live production server not just a test machine.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Detailed knowledge of how to create Java based REST/JSON API’s
  • Learn how to setup a Maven project in Eclipse
  • Learn how to document your API’s using Swagger.
  • Learn how to use MongoDB as the back end for API’s.
  • Teaching by example, several hands on examples showing every detail to the smallest degree from starting a new application to deploying it in production.
  • Access to Instructors GitHub account with many extras and examples.

If you don’t have a a production server device don’t worry, we show you how to test everything on your local computer.

Note: Development is all described on a Mac OSX notebook, Windows is not address. Java is a portable language and all the tools described in this calss are available on Java as well but no intention is made to describe how to setup them up of use the Windows versions.
