REST Web Service Development for the Enterprise
Give power to your web applications with the addition of REST web services. Take advantage of REST web service development tools in MyEclipse for generating code and testing RESTful services.
Ready for efficient REST web service development?
Get Started with MyEclipse
While you learn more about REST web services tools, go ahead and start your MyEclipse download!
Start with Built-in Libraries
Choose the REST (JAX-RS) and Java EE versions that best fit the needs of your project to incorporate associated libraries automatically. Wizards make library management a snap; libraries are included with MyEclipse with no additional downloads required. If you’re a Maven shop, we’ve got you covered – we’ll set up the necessary dependencies in your pom.xml.
Wizards Simplify Development
From a new project, to web service resource methods to REST facades, MyEclipse is wizard-driven, making REST web service development project creation and configuration a cinch. For example, the REST Facade Generation wizard creates facades by exposing reverse-engineered database entities.

Quick Access to Resources and Methods
With the REST Explorer, view the REST web services you’ve defined for a specific project at a glance. Quickly navigate between methods and resources. Open resources and jump straight to a method with a double-click.
Easy Testing on a Variety of App Servers
Deploy to a range of Java EE compliant application servers such as WebSphere, Glassfish, WebLogic, Tomcat, JBoss and more. Debug and hot-sync projects, and customize deployment configurations. For super-quick testing of your REST web services, use the integrated MyEclipse Tomcat and Derby servers.
Verify REST Quality
Check the integrity of your REST methods using the visual WADL editor and REST web services explorer. Be sure your Gets and Posts work as expected. The REST explorer also allows you to test even authenticated services or explore social API such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
Put additional technologies to work in your REST web service development
Developing for the enterprise throws a lot of things your way. With MyEclipse, get easy access to multiple technologies that allow you to provide solutions for anything that comes your way.
Jump-Start Your Spring
If Spring is your thing, give your Spring a boost with built-in Spring framework libraries, bean development tools, and even Spring scaffolding. Learn More
Unchain Your WebSphere
Don’t get stuck in a rut. With MyEclipse, you can work with WebSphere while enjoying the freedom to explore other technologies. Learn More
